A new conical agglutinated foraminifer, Lepinoconus chiocchinii gen n., n. sp. from
the lower Campanian shallow-water platform deposits of the Lepini Mountains (central
Apennines, Italy), is described. It has a pseudo-keriothecal wall structure, uniserial
arrangement of the adult chambers and multiple apertures. The exoskeleton is constituted
by beams (main and intercalary) continuous from one chamber to the next, while the
endoskeleton bears pillars. The new taxon is included in the Coskinolinidae family.
Lepinoconus chiocchinii gen. n., n. sp. is known from southern Italy, Greece and Albania.
