We present a new species of Miscellanea from a Selandian clast of the Mt. Vrachionas succession conglomerate (Zakynthos, Greece; Dermitzakis, 1978). This species occurs also in various coeval deposits from central and southern Italy: Mattinata (Gargano), Rio Arno (Gran Sasso), Conca di Cittareale (Rieti). The new species is a potential additional marker of SBZ 2 (Shallow Benthic Zones sensu Serra-Kiel et al., 1998), and represents a noteworthy occurrence in the frame of the biotic recovery after the K/T event, as well as the co-occurring larger foraminiferal assemblages. The investigated specimens come from a conglomerate cropping out along the Romiri/Macherado-Agalas road, near the village of Kiliomeno, Zakynthos, Ionian Islands, Greece (37°44.603' N 20°47.795' E). The age of the assemblage is Selandian, SBZ 2 sensu Serra-Kiel et al. (1998). Miscellanea n. sp. occurs with Haddonia praeheissigi Samuel, Köhler & Borza, 1977, Haymanella paleocenica Sirel, 1998, Kayseriella decastroi Sirel, 1998, Globoflarina sphaeroidea (Fleury, 1982), Pseudocuvillierina sireli (Inan, 1988) and Helenalveolina cf. rahaghii nom. nud. in Drobne et al.

Abstract

We present a new species of Miscellanea from a Selandian clast of the Mt. Vrachionas succession conglomerate (Zakynthos, Greece; Dermitzakis, 1978). This species occurs also in various coeval deposits from central and southern Italy: Mattinata (Gargano), Rio Arno (Gran Sasso), Conca di Cittareale (Rieti). The new species is a potential additional marker of SBZ 2 (Shallow Benthic Zones sensu Serra-Kiel et al., 1998), and represents a noteworthy occurrence in the frame of the biotic recovery after the K/T event, as well as the co-occurring larger foraminiferal assemblages. The investigated specimens come from a conglomerate cropping out along the Romiri/Macherado-Agalas road, near the village of Kiliomeno, Zakynthos, Ionian Islands, Greece (37°44.603' N 20°47.795' E). The age of the assemblage is Selandian, SBZ 2 sensu Serra-Kiel et al. (1998). Miscellanea n. sp. occurs with Haddonia praeheissigi Samuel, Köhler & Borza, 1977, Haymanella paleocenica Sirel, 1998, Kayseriella decastroi Sirel, 1998, Globoflarina sphaeroidea (Fleury, 1982), Pseudocuvillierina sireli (Inan, 1988) and Helenalveolina cf. rahaghii nom. nud. in Drobne et al. (2005). (Excerpt from text.)
