Fossil assemblages from the Upper Cretaceous Komen and Tomaj Limestones of Kras (Slovenia)
Abstract:The Cretaceous beds of the Trieste–Komen plateau were deposited in the north-western part of the Adriatic-Dinaric carbonate platform. Variously thick intercalations of platy and laminated limestones rich with fossils occur in seemingly similar lithologic form within the different formations ranging from the Cenomanian to the Lower Campanian. This article aims to present results of our study of the megafossil assemblages (fishes, ammonoids, and flora) found in the Komen and Tomaj Limestones on the Slovenian part of the Trieste-Komen plateau (Kras area).
