Foraminiferal assemblages of the coasts of Samandağ and Yayladaği (Hatay, SE Turkey), were investigated. Species composition of the assemblage and abundance of some dominant species were determined. Indo-Pacific originated alien species were found to be dominant as it is the case on southwestern coast of Turkey. Amphistegina lobifera Larsen was the most abundant species and Pararotalia calcariformata McCulloch also showed extensive abundance in some sampling sites. Siphonina tubulosa Cushman is recorded first time in the Mediterranean.
