The first known occurrence of foraminifera in the Upper Carboniferous marine bed near Manendragarh, central India, is reported. Nine species are recorded, including one new species. The fauna is characterized by the exclusive occurrence of arenaceous forms, which show affinity with contemporaneous faunas from the Pennsylvanian of North America.
