The faunas recorded from the Chalk of the Ipswich sheet are predominantly of BGS19 foraminifera zone (pilula to very basal quadrata macrofaunal Zone). A few samples contained longer ranging taxa which prevented accurate age determinations, although all fell within the socialis to basal quadrata zones. The occurrence of Pullenia cf. quaternaria appears to be outside its stratigraphical limits compared to southern England, but careful examination of this foraminifer indicates that it is a new species and that interpretation of some other records in eastern England may deserve reconsideration.
