Jan Malec, Grzegorz Racki, Maria Racka

Abstract


The peculiar ostracode-charophyte assemblage, discovered in the limestone intercalation within the Zbrza Dolostone of the Dębnik anticline, Cracow Upland (southern Poland), is composed of abundant leperditiid ostracodes, Briartina obtusa (JONES), Herrmannina lotzi (KEGEL), Herrmannina sp. and Briartina sp. associated with the charophytes Sycidium volborthi volborthi KARPINSKY. These fossils indicate an early Givetian age for this part of the carbonate sequence.
