Silicoflagellates are described from Sites 588 (middle Eocene), 591 (middle Miocene to lower Pliocene), and 594 (middle Miocene to Quaternary) in the southwest Pacific. At Sites 591 and 594 a detailed silicoflagellate zonation is possible, although there are some obvious differences arising from the latitudinal position of the sites in the silicoflagellate assemblages. Comparison between the sequences recovered at Sites 591 and 206 (Leg 21) revealed two hiatuses in the latter, but helped to establish a zonation for this area from the lower Miocene to the Pleistocene and a correlation to standard nannoplankton zones. The stratigraphic implications of the taxonomy used by various authors and the species concept presented here are discussed in detail. Special reference is made to types described by Ehrenberg and to later synonyma, because the Ehrenberg collection is the base for all subsequent descriptions and evaluations of silicoflagellate taxa.
Two new genera (Neonaviculopsis, Paramesocena), two new subspecies (Dictyocha fibula subsp. asymmetrica, Neonaviculopsis neonautica subsp. praenautica), and three new forms (Dictyocha perlaevis f. pentaradiata, Distephanus speculum subsp. speculum f. nonarius, and Mesocena ? hexalitha f. heptalitha) are described from the southwest Pacific Neogene and Pleistocene. Associated sponge spicules were noted and will be described in detail in a later paper, but some are documented on Plate 13.
