New rotaloidean foraminifera from the Upper Cretaceous shallow-water carbonates of Central and Southern Italy have been described, thus widening the knowledge on the Late Cretaceous rotaloidean foraminifera in the Central Tethyan realm. Rotorbinella lepina sp. nov., Rotalispira vitigliana sp. nov. and R. maxima sp. nov., belong to the family Rotaliidae (subfamilies Rotaliinae and Lockhartiinae, respectively).

Abstract

New rotaloidean foraminifera from the Upper Cretaceous shallow-water carbonates of Central and Southern Italy have been described, thus widening the knowledge on the Late Cretaceous rotaloidean foraminifera in the Central Tethyan realm. Rotorbinella lepina sp. nov., Rotalispira vitigliana sp. nov. and R. maxima sp. nov., belong to the family Rotaliidae (subfamilies Rotaliinae and Lockhartiinae, respectively). Pilatorotalia pignattii gen. nov. sp. nov. and Neorotalia? cretacea sp. nov. are placed in the family Pararotaliidae. Moreover, further studies are carried out on the associated Rotalispira scarsellai and “Stensioeina” surrentina. The age assignment of these rotaloideans has been calibrated by means of strontium isotope stratigraphy to late Santonian?-middle Campanian.
