Benthonics
the classification of these planispiral and trochospiral specimens as Cibicides is based upon:
Cushman, J, 1951: Paleocene foraminifera of the Gulf Coastal region of the United States and adjacent areas, U.S. Geological Survey professional paper 232, Plate 19
Any hint of newer literature on paleocene benthonics from the East Coast of the USA is highly appreciated

the classification is difficult for me and may be wrong, it is based upon:
