The micropaleontological analysis of the Upper Cretaceous sediments from the region of the northeast part of Bohemian Cretaceous Basin was carried out. The research follows older works (e.g. SOUKUP 1945). The studied material coming from 22 selected localities belongs to the Lower-Upper Turonian. The general problem of the Cretaceous sediments in the studied region is the great recrystallization of the calcite matrix and therefore the poor preservation of microfossils. The authors found 20 species and genera of foraminifers plus some undetermined sponge spicules, spines of Echinoidea and tests of the bairdiid Ostracoda.
