Saleh K. Khalaf

Abstract. Four species and one subspecies of the trachyleberid Ostracod genus Actinocythereis from the lower Fars Formation (Middle Miocene) of Northern Iraq are described for the first time. All of them are new and they show strong affinities with the species described from the Tertiary of Western India.
