Abstract

Little is known about the taxonomy of Paleocene ostracodes from ocean drilling sites. Herein, we report 14 ostracode species of the families Eucytheridae, Krithidae, Thaerocytheridae, Trachyleberididae, and Xestoleberididae from Cretaceous-Paleocene sediments at U1407 of Integrated Ocean Drilling Program Expedition 342 off Newfoundland, Northwestern Atlantic. We describe five trachyleberidid species new to science: Croninocythereis clavae sp. nov., Phacorhabdotus flabellicarinus sp. nov., Poseidonamicus norrisi sp. nov., Ryugucivis blumi sp. nov., and Trachyleberidea cronini sp. nov.
