Campanian corals from Bayburt (Turkey)
Abstract:Seven coral species in six genera are reported from the limit between Early and Late Campanian of North-Central Turkey. The fauna encompasses typical Late Cretaceous elements, but the ranges of three genera are changed. The last occurrence of Hemiporites Alloiteau, 1952 could be modified from the Turonian to the Early Campanian. The first occurrence of Montastraea Blainville, 1830 is modified from the middle Eocene to the Early Campanian. The first occurrence of the genus Hydnophora Fischer de Waldheim, 1807 is the Early Cenomanian.
