There have been a number of studies of modern benthic foraminiferal assemblages at intertidal sites around the UK (Murray, 1991). Among the localities are several on the south coast of England: Christchurch Harbour (Murray, 1968), the Exe Estuary (Murray, 1983) and the Hamble Estuary (Alve & Murray 1994, 2001; Murray & Alve, 2000; Ward et al., 2003). These studies have focused almost exclusively on hard-shelled, mainly polythalamous foraminifera and excluded soft-shelled monothalamous taxa (organic-walled allogromiids and agglutinated saccamminids). Ellison (1984) found that an unidentified allogromiid species represented...
