The spectrum of depositional environments represented in the Benue Trough ranges from fluviatile to paraic and shallow epicontinental marine. The Upper Cretaceous paralic sequence contains diverse and well preserved arenaceous foraminifera. Nineteen new species are described, namely; Glomospirella ivensis sp.n., Reophax guineana sp.n., Miliammina onyeamensis sp.n., M. pindigensis sp.n., Haplophragmoides bauchensis sp.n., H. pindigensis sp.n., Ammoastuta nigeriana sp.n., Ammobaculites amabensis sp.n., A. bauchensis sp.n., A. benuensis sp.n., A. gombensis sp.n., A. jessensis sp.n., A. numanhensis sp.n., A. pindigensis sp.n., Ammomarginulina emir sp.n., Spiroplectammina hausorum sp.n., Textularia biafrae sp.n., Trochammina afikpensis sp.n., and T. imensis sp.n.

Rozpiętość środowisk sedymentacji reprezentowanych przez osady w rowie Benue sięga od typu rzecznego do paralicznego i płytkomorskiego, epikontynentalnego. Sekwencja paraliczna górnej kredy zawiera zróżnicowane i dobrze zachowane zlepieńcowate otwornice. W pracy opisano 19 nowych gatunków tych otwornic.
