Radiolarians are present in samples from six of the seven Deep Sea Drilling Project Leg 96 sites examined. The age of the siliceous fauna in these samples ranges from late Pleistocene through Holocene, with some Cretaceous radiolarians redeposited in Pleistocene sequences. Radiolarian preservation is discontinuous at these sites except for intraslope basin Site 618, where the sediments throughout the first five cores contain radiolarians.

Abundances of individual species are based on examination of a minimum of 300 radiolarians per sample with abbreviations defined as follows: R = rare (<1 %); F = few (1-3%); C = common (3-10%); A = abundant (>10%); + = one specimen present; - , species sought but not found.
