Ditch cuttings samples from borehole 49/24-2 were examined for planktonic Foraminiferida. The fauna was used to zone the Palaeogene of the borehole from a biostratigraphical zonation scheme compiled by Stainforth et al. (1975). The fauna is listed and the zonation procedure for each sample is discussed. This paper shows that an adequate planktonic Foraminiferida fauna is present in the southern North Sea Basin Palaeogene to allow the compilation of a stratigraphy comparable to areas onshore in North-West Europe.
