Abstract67 planktonic foraminiferal species were identified from the Shiranish Formation. On the basis of the stratigraphic distribution of the planktonic foraminiferal assemblages recognited of six biozones within the Shiranish Formation representing an age ranging from Middle Campanian – Early Maastrichtian, these zones are from older at base:
6 -Planoglobulina acervulinoides Interval Zone.
5 - Contusotruncana contusa Total Range Zone.
4 -Gansserina gansseri Interval Zone.
3 - Globotruncana aegyptiaca Interval Biozone.
2 -Globotruncanella havanensis Interval Biozone.
1 -Globotruncana ventricosa Interval Biozone
