Molecular phylogeny of large miliolid foraminifera (Soritacea Ehrenberg 1839).
The assemblage is considered to be Aquitanian in age and The most important foraminifera in this assemblage are Miliolids gen.
Miliolids, corallinacea red algae and coral are dominating components in this microfacies.
The associations of miliolids within this facies support the additional interpretation of a relatively protected environment, probably the inner part of a platform [29].
Some biogenic components such as miliolids indicate stress conditions within restricted environments.
Inner shelf deposits represent a wider spectrum of marginal marine deposits Faunal diversity is low and normal marine fauna are lacking, except for imperforate benthic foraminifera such as miliolids, Dendritina and perforate rotaliids which indicate quite sheltered conditions [11].
Fossils in this unit include abundant thin-shelled oysters, other small bivalves, thin, high-spired gastropods, orbitolinids, miliolids and ostracodes.
Abundant pelloid along with Orbitolites and Miliolids and with a lower amount Nummulites and mudsupported facies, proposed the deposition in the lagoonal environments.
