Site 765 contains a sequence of tropical, middle Miocene to Holocene dinoflagellate cysts. These diverse assemblages are characterized by abundant Polysphaeridium zoharyi and Spiniferites bulloideus. Abundances of Impagidinium spp. and Nematosphaeridium spp. reflect the shelf-to-slope origin of the assemblages. One new genus, Blysmatodinium, and two new species, Nematosphaeridium (?) wrennii sp. nov. and Blysmatodinium argoi, are described.
