Cenozoic Ostracoda obtained from wells and surface exposures
in North Carolina are described. Eight of the species
are new. This work provides our first knowledge of the pre-Miocene Cenozoic Ostracoda in North Carolina. The names of the surface Cenozoic formations are not applied to the subsurface units in this paper because of uncertainties in correlation; instead, the more general terms Paleocene (?), lower Eocene, middle Eocene, Oligocene or lower Miocene, lower Miocene, middle Miocene, upper Miocene, Pliocene, Pleistocene, and Recent are used.
