Twenty-one benthic foraminiferal species were originally erected from the Southern Tethys, 13 species from Egypt, and 8 species from Pakistan. Some of these species were recorded from different localities in the Northern Tethys: France, Spain, Italy, North Atlantic, Slovenia and Gulf of Biscay. Textularia crookshanki, Trifarina esnaensis and Cibicidoides libycus in France and North Atlantic, Orthokarstenia nakkadyi and Cibicidoides pseudoacutus in France and Spain, Eponides lotus in Italy and Gulf of Biscay, Siphogaudryina africana in France and Italy, Asterigerina brencei in Spain and Slovenia. Another 9 Southern Tethyan foraminiferal species were recorded in France (Spiroplectinella esnaensis, Astacolus vomeriformis, Vaginulinopsis nammalensis, Reussella johnstoni, Angulogavelinella abudurbensis, Cibicidoides nammalensis, Planulina sinaensis, Asterigerina cuniformis, Elphidiella africana), 2 species in Spain (Verneuilina aegyptiaca, Coleites galeebi), and one species in Italy (Haplophragmoides desertorum), and Hungary (Bathysiphon saidi).
