Cretaceous Ostracoda From Wells in the Southeastern United States -<br>NCGS Bulletin 78

Three collections of Cretaceous Ostracoda are described and illustrated in this paper. Although the three collections differ in age and in geographic distribution, they contribute to general knowledge of Cretaceous ostracodes of the southeastern United States, and are treated together for this reason. The three collections represent deposits of Trinity age, possible Fredericksburg and Washita age, and Woodbine and Eagle Ford age. An assemblage of Ostracoda, collected by Brown from cuttings from water wells in central and northeastern North Carolina, represents an apparent nearshore assemblage of Albian age that does not have a recognizable counterpart among previously described Cretaceous ostracode faunas. In addition, it provides new data concerning the areal distribution of marine Cretaceous sediments in the Middle Atlantic States. By Frederick M. Swain and Philip M. Brown, 1964. 55 pages.
