Two new coccolith-agglutinated foraminiferal species, Pseudobolivina islándica n. sp. and Haplophragmoides atlanti-cus n. sp., are described from Recent and Upper Holocene sediments at Hunaflóaáll on the North Icelandic shelf. Specimens of the two species have been found only in the small (63-106 um) fraction using the wet-counting method. This method allows preservation of these fragile tests, which are predominantly composed of coccoliths, mainly of the species Coccolithus pelagicus (Wallich, 1877).
