A 27 m borehole which was drilled near Vendee, France, penetrated Upper Cretaceous deposits that have yielded a palynologic assemblage of spores, pollen and dinoflagellates. Only dinoflagellates and Normapolles pollen are systematically described herein; the other species of spores and pollen are dealt with in groups. A biostratigraphic zonation of the Upper Cretaceous was drawn up on the basis of these assemblages which provide new information on the Cretaceous paleogeography and climatology of the area. The microfloristic elements of the samples are compared to others of the same age.
