Abstract. This paper describes four new Cenozoic, deep-water benthic foraminifera from the reference collections at the Natural History Museum in London. The focus is on selected calcareous taxa that are of stratigraphical and/or palaeoecological significance for academic and industrial-related activities.

Alabamina heyae (urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:1E8A66E9-1F4C-4B61-BA97-6E0ECCD0173E), Nonion cepa (urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:9F36350A-1E49-4D69-B2CC-C83F343E2952), Uvigerina kingi (urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:C36C89C2-2E65-4FF6-9368-C169B4591995) and Lenticulina stewarti (urn:lsid:zoobank.org:act:485AE871-CECA-44E8-ABD1-BAE2961FFD59) are described with new illustrations. Their biostratigraphic and palaeoecological significance is briefly discussed.
