The Lower Cretaceous of the central and southern Alberta plains and the central foothills area contains a rich assemblage of ostracodes and charophytes. This zone is useful in correlating strati- grapbic sections from the foothills to the plains area and can also be used as a mappable horizon in the oil fields. Twenty-three of the most commonly occurring species belonging to ten genera are figured and described.
