Summary: The occurrence of Quaternary and Oligocene silicoflagellates at two ODP Leg 119 Holes (736A and 744A) on the Kerguelen Plateau was investigated to compare species distributions to Northern Hemisphere floras. Tabulated data determined for 24 samples, and a few preliminary remarks, are presented. Quaternary assemblages of Hole 736A are noteworthy for the absence of key North Pacific zonal guide species. Other species such as Distephanus floridus, Distephanus speculum elongatus, and Mesocena octagona show limited ranges in Hole 736A and may help to subdivide the Quaternary locally. The Late Oligocene assemblages of Hole 744A contain widely distributed species of Distephanus and Naviculopsis, which permit correlation to lower latitude assemblages. They also contain the high-latitude acme of Distephanus raupii. (Auth. mod.)
