Abstract: Fifty two species belonging to twenty one benthic foraminiferal genera have been recorded from seventeen samples collected from three localities; 12 samples from saline pool and its surrounding Sabkha at Ras Shukeir area and 5 samples from the Gulf of Suez. Their taxonomy, ecology and the main factors controlling their distribution are discussed. The frequency of fauna in Gulf of Suez, evaporatic sabkha and saline pool are (59.27%), (32.78%) and (7.95%) respectively, which reflect abnormal salinity and temperature. All identified species were previously recorded from Red Sea and Mediterranean Sea.
