Lower Permian conodonts from the Karavanke Mts. (Slovenia)
AbstractThe first conodont fauna (4 species) from the “Trogkofel Limestones” of the Karavanke Mts. (Dolžanova soteska) is described and correlated with the fusulinids (3 species) within the same sample. The occurrence of Streptognathodus cf. simplex, Streptognathodus cf. elongatus and Diplognathodus expansus? together with Dutkevitchia complicata indicates a higher age (Asselian) of these limestones than previously thought, because even the Upper Pseudoschwagerina Limestone (Sakmarian) of the Carnic Alps already yields a Sweetognathus fauna. To avoid misunderstanding in correlations the name “Dolžanova soteska limestone member” is introduced for the white, pale red to red limestone unit, described as “Trogkofel Limestone” in previous literature.
