Larger Oligocene Foraminifera from France

A couple of weeks ago I received a package of 400g from Adrian - one of the few contributors for, who sends us samples. Adrian is a malacologist.
It contained quite well preservered sediments from the Oligocene (Chattian) of Southern France. Now we in Hamburg have made some SEMs and Bernard Remaud nice optical images. My identifications are Lepidocyclina sp. and Miogypsina bantamensis.
Recommendations of literature on such Oligocene/Miocene larger foraminifera are welcome and maybe send via PM.
