Title: A Middle Miocene gastropod shell with epifauna from the locality Buituri (Transylvanian Basin, Romania)
Year: 2004
Volume: 22
Pages: 99-105.

Abstract: Abundant epifauna (bivalves, bryozoans, sessile worms), settled on gastropod shell (Cerithium crenatum BROCCHI), was studied from the Badenian locality of Buituri. Several epifaunal attachment phases were recognized passing off partly either during the life of the gastropod or at the time when its empty shell was approximately in the same position as during its lifetime, partly after the death of the gastropod when its shell was turned over from the life position. Mutual interactions among various representatives of sessile benthos colonizing the shell were described and interpreted.
