The most abundant benthic foraminifera in this type are milolids such as Quinquloculina, Pyrgo, Schlumbergerina and Triloculina The other fossil components of this microfacies are mainly Dendritina, Ammonia, Discorbis and fragments of echinoderms.

Microscopic plants called coccolithophores (common alga) surround themselves with protective calcite plates; aragonite is used by pteropods (snail-like molluscs) to build their shells and corals use it to make their skeletons which helps form reefs; while some echinoderms, starfish, sea urchins, brittle stars, utilise magnesium calcite to form their exoskeletons.
The following were identified with varying depth: Sponges, echinoderms, pelecypods, bivalves, coralline algae and foraminifera Globorotalia cerroazulensis.
The Macrobenthic invertebrates in this study are categorized as follows: Annelids consist of about 15,000 species (Campbell 1996) including segmented worms, polychaetes, as well as earth worms and leeches (Hickman 2006); Echinoderms, meaning spiny skin in Greek, consist of about 7,000 different species (Nichols 1969); Crustaceans consist of about 52,000 species (Hickman 2006) including shrimp, lobsters, crayfish, and crabs (Day et al.

8-13) These include epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) 1; anaplastic lymphoma kinase receptor (ALK), primarily as the echinoderm microtubule-associated proteinlike 4-ALK fusion gene (EML4-ALK); vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) and the VEGF receptor (VEGFR); and epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2/ ERBB2).
The rapid switch from El Nina to La Nina conditions in fall 1998 reversed thermal stress, low productivity, and echinoderm disease influences.
