The Oligocene to Pliocene section from Hole 628A supplied about 100 species of Tertiary ostracodes. Deep-sea psychrospheric? species (Bradleya cf. dictyon, Agrenocythere cf. gosnoldia, Cardobairdia spp., Henryhowella sp., Cytheropteron spp., etc.) are present throughout the section. Starting in the Miocene, neritic species (Hulingsina sp., Puriana spp., Caudites spp., Loxoconcha fischeri, Cytherelloidea sp., etc.) dominate. Redeposition of these species from the continental shelf seems to be penecontemporaneous with sedimentation.
