The Paleocene succession of Jabal Mundassa, Al Ain area, United Arab Emirates (UAE) contains prolific and well-preserved species of agglutinates, planktic and calcareous benthic foraminifera at the Danian/Selandian (D/S) transition. This succession is considered as the only one that has Danian sediments in the Al Ain area. The present study is deals with the taxonomy, palaeogeography and stratigraphic distribution of twenty-six agglutinated benthic species at Jabal Mundassa and other Paleocene outcrops localities in the Tethys.
