Mid-Cretaceous foraminifers of the northeastern Mesozoic margin of the Holy Cross Mts. have been described. Planktic foraminifer standard zones - the Rotalipora appeninnica, Rotalipora brotzeni, Rotalipora cushmani, Praeglobotruncana helvetica - have been distinguished in the profile of Ożarów. A local benthic zonation, with the Lingulogavelinella frankei, Gavelinella schloenbachi, Lingulogavelinella spinosa, Lingulogavelinella formosa, Gavelinella baltica and
Lingulogavelinella globosa zones, has been established in this profile. Due to the strong stratigraphic condensation and mixed fauna, no boundaries between the zones mentionned could be determined in the Rachów anticline.

Key words: Foraminiferida, Albian, Cenomanian, Turonian, stratigraphy, Poland.
