Title: The Pliensbachian brachiopods of the Bakony Mts (Hungary): a stratigraphical study
Year: 1983
Volume: 11
Pages: 29-39.

Abstract: 6250 brachiopod specimens from the Pliensbachian of the Bakony Mts. have been studied: the fauna consists of 33 genera with 101 species. This is the richest fauna known from the Mediterranean province. The brachiopods have been collected from 31 localities from different limestone facies, in most cases together with ammonites. This provides a basis for the precise determination of stratigraphical ranges of Mediterranean brachiopods. Tentatively, three brachiopod biozones have been established: (l) Cuneirhynchia ? palmata zone ( = uppermost Sinemurian + Uptonia jamesoni Zone); (2) Lokutella kondai zone ( = Tragophylloceras ibex Zone + Prodactylioceras davoei Zone); and (3) Apringia ? stoppanii zone (= Amaltheus stokesi Zone - Pleuroceras spinatum Zone = Domerian substage).
