Two hundred and forty nine taxa of benthic foraminifera from the Plio-Pleistocene Kallithea Bay section, Rhodes, Greece are listed and treated systematically. Two hundred and twenty eight of these taxa are illustrated by SEM photomicrographs. A short description of distinguishing morphological features is given for each taxon, together with an overview of ecological requirements. The ecological data include information on the depth distribution of species and composition of bottom sediment, but preferences related to temperature, salinity, oxygen, organic content of the sediment, food supply, and microhabitat are also given, whenever the information has been available.
