At the contact of the Pieniny Klippen Belt with the Podhale Flyseh (Palaeogene) at Szaflary (Polish Carpathians), occur late Maastrichtian and Paleocene deposits of small thickness, characterized by abundant, predominantly planktonic foraminiferal assemblages, developed in a facies unknown from the Klippen successions in Poland. These deposits correspond to a zone known in Slovakia as the „peri-Klippen” zone, resp. Myjava Furrow, which was situated to (the south of the Klippen Belt basin and its southern exotic massif, and to the north of the folded Central Carpathian (Sub-Tatric and High-Tatric) units.
