Abstract

Thirteen species of fusulinids are illustrated and described from eleven collections within the Cyathophyllum Limestone of central Vestspitsbergen. The lower collections at Tempelfjorden and the collection from Mount Lykta contain Schubertella transitoria, Triticites arcticus, and Schwageriiia anderssoni and other species typical of the Carboniferous zones C3C through C3E of the Ural region of the U.S.S.R. It is suggested that “Fusulinella" usvae is a species of Waeringella. Higher collections at Tempelfjorden include Parafusulina furnishi n. sp. and Pseudofusulinella tempelensis n. sp. and a loose block from higher in the succession includes Schwagerina globosa and Monodiexodina cf. M. paralinearis which are suggestive of a late Sakmarian or early Artinskian (Permian) age.
