This atlas consists of 123 species of foraminifera from the Miocene and Pliocene of California. Each taxon is illustrated with type figures, scanning electron micrographs, and thin-section photomicrographs. Accompanying data on the taxonomy, biostratigraphic range and paleoenvironmental significance of each species provides workers with an efficient means of interpreting the provincial assemblages.

New species described are Bolivina santanaensis and Lagena newportensis.
