Summary: Bivalves, calcareous worm tubes, and an irregular echinoid are described and illustrated from Cenomanian/Turonian, upper Campanian, and middle to upper Eocene sediments recovered from several holes penetrated by Ocean Drilling Program Leg 120 drilling. Environments represented include deep-sea oozes and inner-continental shelf depths. All fossils are identified to genus but are left in open nomenclature at the specific level. The occurrence of Pycnodonte (Crenostrea) sp., an oyster, in deep-sea sediments seems unusual. (Auth.)
