Stratigraphic pattern of index foraminifera in the Lower Cretaceous of Trinidad

Bartenstein, Helmut


A generalized Stratigraphic chart for the Lower Cretaceous, Barremian to Albian, in Trinidad W. I. using the most important index foraminifera is presented. Brief listing of 31 foraminiferal species is given mostly citing their first description in Trinidad and in a few cases, especially when the available specimens are strongly weathered, with typical representatives of the same age occurring in North West Germany.
