Also known as Reef 3207
Where: Slovakia (49.1° N, 18.2° E: paleocoordinates 40.8° N, 25.5° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Vrsatec Limestone Member, Oxfordian (163.5 - 157.3 Ma)
• Vrsatec Limestone is part of Czorsztyn Succession.
•The age of the biohermal coral limestones, accepted previouslyas the Oxfordian (cf. Mišík 1979) is assumed to correspondto the Bajocian (probably Early Bajocian) (i.a. Schlöglet al. 2006, 2009a,b) on the basis of the stratigraphic superimpositioncriteria and ammonite species Nannolytocerastripartitum (Raspail) occurring in the neptunic dyke cuttingthe peribiohermal limestones (i.a. Schlögl et al. 2006, 2009a)and Bathonian-Callovian ammonites occurring in dykes in the uppermost part of the Vršatec limestone in the Vršatec- Castle Klippe (Schlögl et al. 2009b). However, other age bio-indicators and in particular the youngest indicator of the biohermal coral-bearing limestones and their equivalents, should also be considered.
