The study area is located within the Western Anatolia between Kuşadası, Söke and Davutlar districts in Aydın city. Within the scope of the study the ostracod faunal assemblages of Neogene and Quaternary Söke, Kuşadası and Fevzipaşa Formations outcropping in the study area are examined. 15 genera and 31 taxa of ostracods belonging to 6 families are determined by the detailed examination of 151 samples gathered from 10 measured stratigraphic sections. 22 of the determined taxa were previously described, 9 of the ostracoda taxa belong to open nomenclature.The chronostratigraphic ranges of the ostracod faunal assemblages are supported with the age findings related to the other faunal and floral assemblages determined in previous studies as well as in this study. As a result it is determined that the Söke Formation was deposited during late Early-Middle Miocene, the Kuşadası Formation during Late Miocene and the middle parts of the Fevzipaşa Formation during Early Pleistocene.
