We surveyed, sampled and described Late Eocene (Priabonian) benthic foraminiferal fauna from two sections in the type locality of the Socka beds, between Socka and Dobrna.We present a short history of research of these beds emphasising their dating, from the middle of 19th century on. We describe the lithological characteristics and lithostratigraphy of the sections. In total 118 taxa of benthic foraminifers were identified, and the Priabonian age of the Soca beds established.
