Özet

This study presents the descriptive palaeontology of two very shallow-water Miocene successions with benthic foraminifera located in the Diyarbakır-

Siirt region of southeastern Turkey. Two rows of apertural foramina and alternating Y-shaped septula with supplementary chamberlets were identified. As

a result, Borelis curdica (Reichel) was transferred to Praebullalveolina Sirel and Acar as Praebullalveolina curdica (Reichel). Furthermore, two Holocene

archaiasinid genera, Androsina Lévy and Cyclorbiculina Silvestri, of the new species were described and figured as Cyclorbiculina minima n. sp. and Androsina

diyarbakirensis n. sp. from the very shallow-water Miocene limestone of the Derge section. The Oligocene hauerinid species Sivasina egribucakenssis Sirel

and Özgen-Erdem and Sivasina batmanensis n. sp. were also defined from the shallow-water Miocene limestone of the Derge and Baysu sections.
