Smaller Foraminifera are recorded and illustrated from the Agua Fresca shale of southernmost Chile as represented by 20 outcrop samples and 46 well cores. Of the 114 species and varieties included, 29 species are described as new and one new name is proposed. The fauna is correlated with that of the Kreyenhagen shale of California. The composition of the fauna indicates deposition at considerable depth and under open-sea conditions.
