These faunas may be split readily into two groups, the first of which consists of tiny arenaceous foraminifera with flimsy tests. Faunules of this group are known only from brackish-water facies such as parts of the Mississippi and Orinoco deltas and a salt marsh in Trinidad (see Lowman, , pp. ; Cushman and Brönnimann, ).

Only the primitive arenaceous foraminifera are discussed in this paper. Based on lithofacies and faunas, the depth of deposition of the Upper Jurassic/Lower Cretaceous sediments at Site increases upward in the section.
