Ostracodes were recovered from eight Eocene sections of southern Israel; 41 species were identified. Biostratigraphic correlation is with reference to planktic foraminiferal P-zone schemes. Five new taxa include the new species Krithe benjaminii, Schizocythere guerneti, Paijenborchella druckmani, and Echinocythereis aqravensis; Mauritsina jordanica israeliana is distinguished from M. jordanica ss Three assemblage zones are recognized: E-1, the Soudanella laciniosa triangulata AZ, Early Eocene; E-2, the Costa capsella AZ, l
