The ostracode genus Xylocythere MADDOCKS & STEINECK, 1987, from the Middle Miocene of the Fore-Carpathian Depression, southern Poland (Central Paratethys), and its biogeographic significance

Janina Szczechura


A new species of the ostracode, Xylocythere carpathica sp.n., is described from the upper part of the Middle Miocene (i.e. the Upper Badenian, corresponding to the Serravallian) of the Fore-Carpathian Depression in southern Poland. This new ostracode species as well as the associated microfossils (other ostracodes, foraminifers and bolboforms), is indicative of the Middle Miocene influence of deep oceanic (including Atlantic) waters into the Central Paratethys.
