Abstract: 

The Abtalkh Formation is one of the Cretaceous sedimentary units of Kopeh-Dagh sedimentary basin that consist shale and marl. This formation is rich in ostracods. This study lead to recognition of 18 genera and 48 species. The recognized assemblages of ostracods is compared with those reported from Iran and other adjacent regions. Based on the identified species three biozones (Cytherelloidea sp1, Veenia sp2, Limburgina sp.) have been determined in this section. According to the established ostracod biozones and correlation with biozones provided based on nannofossil, the age of the Abtalkh Formation in the studied section is Late Campanian- Early Maastrichtian- Late Maastrichtian.
