Ostracods from the Upper Oligocene to Lower Miocene Pirabas Formation, Northeastern Amazonia, Para State, Brazil were examined from one subsurface and four outcrop sections. A total of 119 species were recognized and are illustrated; another 53 species were left in open nomenclature. Twenty-seven of the species are common to the Neogene of Caribbean, another two species are known from areas other than the Caribbean, and one species was already described from the studied unit. This study provides a robust taxonomic database for paleoenvironmental, biostratigraphic and paleogeographic studies and contributes to the knowledge of the paleodiversity of Neogene Ostracods from the Southwestern Atlantic.
