Abstract. A small fauna represented by 17 species of ostracods, belonging to 13 genera, has been obtained from white oolitic limestones of probable Washitan (late Albian-early Cenomanian) age in 11 deep wells in Collier, Lee, Monroe, Pinellas, Palm Beach, Hendry, and Highlands Counties, central and southern Florida. Both marine and presumed brackish-water and/or fresh-water species are represented in the fauna. Five of the species are new; Clithrocytheridea? medioreticulata, C.? paucipunctata, C.? holoreticulata, Eocytheropteron highlandsensis and Cytheropteron? pinellensis.
