Gastropods, bivalves, cephalopods, corals, and other fossils collected from Riyadh area, Saudi Arabia are significant for interpreting the age of the host rocks. The fossils range from Late Jurassic to Eocene in age. Descriptions are given of the significant components of the fauna. The state of preservation is generally good although the specimens are preserved as steinkerns. Stratigraphic information is provided for the several fossil-bearing sections yielding these fossils.
