Abstract

© 2015, Carnets de Geologie. All rights reserved. The Font de les Bagasses marls and marly limestones (Montsec Mountains, NE Spain) host a rich assemblage of larger foraminifera, that was described for the first time in the early 20th Century from the currently submerged locality of Tragó de Noguera (Marginal Mountains). In this paper, a detailed architectural study has been carried out on selected, agglutinated larger foraminifera, which include Choffatella aff. rugoretis GENDROT, Hemicyclammina chalmasi (SCHLUMBERGER), Cuneolina conica ORBIGNY, Cuneolina cylindrica HENSON, and Dictyopsella kiliani MUNIER-CHALMAS. Moreover, it presents their biostratigraphic range and the range of the associated porcellaneous and lamellar-perforate for a-minifera in the study area. The assemblage is Early Campanian in age.
