A new species of Cassigerinella (C. eocaenica) is proposed for specimens obtained from an Eocene sample taken off Blake Plateau, Florida. The species is similar, but quite distinct from the Oligocene marker C. chipolensis (Cushman and Ponton 1932). Therefore the stratigraphical value of the overlap in ranges of C. chipolensis with Pseudohastigerina micro (Cole 1927) as indicators of basal Oligocene is not affected.
