Biostratigraphy and Paleoenvironment of Bolivina Fauna from the Niger Delta, Nigeria
A rich Bolivina assemblage occurs in the onshore Tonjor-1 well of Niger Delta; eighteen species are reported for the first time. Some index planktonic foraminifera allowed a late Early Eocene age
Foraminifera biostratigraphy and paleoenvironment of Well 5, OML 34, Niger Delta, Nigeria
A full account of 67 ditch cutting samples collected from Well 5, OML 34 in the Niger Delta at depth intervals between 2441m to 3650m is presented. Lithologic description of the samples shows seven

Bolivinitids of the Niger Delta, Nigeria
Reyment (1959) studied borehole samples from West Africa that yielded the genus Bolivina amongst others, proposing seven new species. His study confirmed that the bolivinids were useful
Bolivina batanensis sp. nov, a new benthonic foraminifera from Niger Delta, Nigeria
A new species of benthonic foraminifera Bolivina batanensis sp.nov belonging to the genus Bolivina has been found in the western Niger Delta basin sediments. This species is restricted to Early
Evolutionary Trends in Bolivina From Maastrichtian to Eocene, Nigeria
TLDR
AEM study of Maastrichtian to Eocene bolivinids shows evolutionary trends of biocharacters in recognized lineage leading from Afrobolivina afra to Bolivina ignara, and two phylogenetic lineages are proposed based on evolutionary trends that have allowed the linkage of related forms.
Bolivina lata sp. nov., a new foraminiferal species in the family Bolivinitidae from Niger Delta, Nigeria
A new benthonic foraminifera, Bolivina lata sp. nov. is described from the Niger delta basin of Nigeria. This foraminiferal species occurs abundantly in the Oligocene of the basin.
