Abstract

From a largely unpublished database the systematics, geographical and stratigraphical distribution of Cainozoic cytherurine Ostracoda found in the deep sea environment of the eastern Indian and south-western Pacific regions is presented. Eleven new species: ?Eucytherura anoda, Eucytherura batalaria, ?Eucytherura boomeri, Eucytherura elegantula, Eucytherura indianensis, Eucytherura multituberculata, Eucytherura pacifica, Eucytherura parabatalaria, ?Eucytherura polydictyota, Eucytherura tumida and Hemiparacytheridea vanharteni are described. Five species are assigned to previously established taxa and four species are left in open nomenclature due to paucity of material.
