Osojnica, Banjska planota (Cretaceous to of Slovenia)

Also known as Reef 1315

Where: Slovenia (46.1° N, 13.7° E: paleocoordinates 29.0° N, 21.7° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Barremian to Barremian (129.4 - 113.0 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified limestone

• The reef limestone is 300 m thick and crops out in an area of 6 kmĀ². A large part of this reef must have been later eroded and redeposited, as evidenced by abundant clasts of Early Cretaceous reef organisms in the Senonian breccia north of Osojnica.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: peel or thin section,
