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.
