Calcareous Nannofossils are good tool for biostratigraphy, especially in the Late Cretaceous. With respect to this and due to the lack of any precise paleontological study, the calcareous nannofossils of Ilam and Gurpi Formations were investigated in the Southwestern Sarvestan. These Formations consists of marl, clay limestone and shale. In this study, for the first time, 14 families, 22 genera and 39 species of nannofossils were identified. Based on the information obtained on nannofossils, the section is aged at Late Coniacian-Early Santonian to Early Maastrichtian corresponding to CC14-CC24 zones (Sissingh, 1977).
