Die Graptolithen des Ordoviziums von Rügen (Norddeutschland, Vorpommern)

  • Jörg Maletz
Article

Abstract

Graptolite faunas from theHolmograptus lentus,Pterograptus elegans, Hustedograptus teretiusculus andNemagraptus gracilis Zones are identified in the Ordovician succession of Rügen. The well sections bear incomplete, often fault-bounded successions. Tectonic stacking is present in the Rügen 3h core. A sedimentological gap is expected in the Arenig. About twenty graptolite species are described and their local biostratigraphic ranges are documented. Most of the faunal elements are described for the first time from the Ordovician of northern Germany. The faunal associations belong to the Atlantic Faunal Province.

Zusammenfassung

Graptolithenfaunen derHolmograptus lentus, Pterograptus elegans, Hustedograptus teretiusculus undNemagraptus gracilis Zonen können im Ordovizium von Rügen nachgewiesen werden. Die einzelnen Bohrungen zeigen unvollständige, oft durch Störungen begrenzte Abfolgen. Eine tektonische Stapelung der altpaläozoischen Abfolge ist in der Bohrung Rügen 3h nachzuweisen. Eine sedimentologische Lücke wird im Arenig des Ordoviziums von Rügen vermutet. Es werden zwanzig Graptolithenarten, die zum größten Teil erstmalig aus dem norddeutschen Ordovizium nachgewiesen werden, beschrieben. Die Faunen repräsentieren die Atlantische Faunenprovinz.
