Abstract

Limestone pebbles of the post-lower Bashkirian Marbella Formation (Malaguides, Internal Zone of the Betic Cordillera) yielded sixteen species of rugose corals belonging to eleven genera and two species of heterocorals belonging to two genera. The fauna is of uppermost Viséan age (V3b-V3c). Its paleogeographic significance within the western Mediterranean is discussed.

Lonsdaleia corbariensis, known up to now only from debris flow deposits of the Mouthoumet massif (Southern France), covers approximately half of the total fauna.Hexaphyllia mirabilis is shown to have juvenile stages with five septa.

Kurzfassung

Aus Kalkgeröllen der post-unterbashkirischen Marbella-Formation (Malagiden, Internzone der Betischen Kordillere) werden sechzehn Arten rugoser Korallen aus elf Gattungen und zwei Arten von Heterokorallen aus zwei Gattungen beschrieben. Die Fauna gehört dem Obervisé V3b-V3c an. Ihre paläogeographische Bedeutung im Rahmen des westlichen Mittelmeergebiets wird diskutiert.

Die bisher nur aus einem Debrisflow-Horizont des Massivs von Mouthoumet (Südfrankreich) bekannteLonsdaleia corbariensis stellt etwa die Hälite der Gesamtfauna. BeiHexaphyllia mirabilis lassen sich fünf-septale Jugendstadien nachweisen.
