Abstract

In this paper 77 foraminiferal taxa are recorded from the Late Oligocene to Early Miocene marine sediments of northern and northlvestern Tasmania. They are recorded following the latest classification pmposed by Loeblich and Tappan (1974). All known Tasmanian Tertiary species of the Superfami1ies Robertinacea, Spirillinacea and Buliminacea are recorded. Most of the Superfamily Discorbacea is also recorded. Three species which could have been documented in Part 1 of this series are also listed. Of the taxa recorded, 53 are identified as previously described species or as similar to previously described species, 22 are left in open nomenclature and Epistominella shauni and Angulodiscorbis ludbrookae are described as new. Most species are figured with scanning electron microscope photographs.
