Marine pelagic deposits of the lower Albian to upper Turonian interval in the Polish part of the Pieniny Klippen Belt are relatively rich in radiolarian fauna as well as in planktonic and agglutinated foraminifera. The proposed radiolarian zones (Holocryptocanium barbui, Hemicryptocapsa prepolyhedra and Hemicryptocapsa polyhedra) have been correlated with planktonic foraminifera biozonation (from Ticinella primula to Dicarinella primitiva zones), and with agglutinated foraminifera biozonation (from Haplophragmoides nonioninoides to Uvigerinammina ex gr. jankoi zones).
