New data on the stratigraphy of the Ordovician at Pobroszyn, Holy Cross Mts., Central Poland

Wiesław S. Bednarczyk, Marzena Stempień-Sałek


New biostratigraphic and lithostratigraphic data are presented for the tectonically reduced Ordovician succession at Pobroszyn in the Łysogóry region of the Holy Cross Mountains, central Poland. Only some of the chronostratigraphic units known from the Łysogóry region can be recognized in this section. However, based on lingulate brachiopods, conodonts, acritarchs and chitinozoa, the units present may be referred to the Late Tremadoc, Late Arenig, Early Lanvirn, Late Lanvirn, Early Caradoc and to the Middle Caradoc and Ashgill. New lithostratigraphic units are established in the lower part of the Ordovician of the Pobroszyn section: the Opatówka Mudstone/Sandstone Formation (?Late Tremadoc) and the Pobroszyn Sandstone Formation (Late Arenig). Three species of lingulate brachiopods are described, of which two are new: Myotreta anitae and Eoconulus lilianae. The conodonts and acritarchs are illustrated and briefly discussed.
