Western and Central Paratethys (Eggenburgian, Ottnangian & Karpatian)

Aporrhaidae from the Burdigalian of the Western and Central Paratethys

Aporrhais sera (Steininger, 1963); Fels am Wagram, Austria; Eggenburgian, Miocene; 57 mm; Coll. Ulrich Wieneke

1963

Steininger, 1963, p. 5:

  • "In an ecologic respect, the deposits at Fels/Wagram represent a fully marine biotope (salinity 33 °/°° - 35 °/°°, temperature: Tropic to subtropic, aeration: good) of the sublittoral to shallow-neritic zone, with no influence whatever of brackish water being noticeable."

Steininger, 1963, p. 54:

  • "Durch das Auftreten dieser Form [Drepanocheilus speciosus megapolitana = Aporrhais n.sp.] wird wieder die enge Beziehung zum bayerischen Burdigal unterstrichen, ebenso die Stellung von Fels am Wagram als tiefstes Glied der Eggenburger Serie gekennzeichnet. Gegenüber den Exemplaren aus dem Chattien von Rumeln, die mit dem Material von Fels am Wagram verglichen wurden, zeigt sich nur eine deutliche Größenzunahme."

2007

The Tethyan Seaway closed during the Early Miocene, about 19 Ma ago. (see Reuter, Piller, Harzhauser et al, 2007)

2009

Landau et al., 2009, p. 62 about Tonnoidea:

  • "The oldest records from the Eggenburgian, with an age of c. 20 Ma, derive from Loibersdorf in Lower Austria (SCHAFFER, 1912) and from the Kaltenbachgraben section in Bavaria (HÖLZL, 1958). The rare Ottnangian records are c. 18 Ma old and are represented by Ottnang in Upper Austria and the Kaltenbachgraben section in Bavaria (STEININGER, 1973). Tonnoidean-bearing Karpatian localities are rare as well, and are confined to Laa, Kleinebersdorf, Karnabrunn, and Niederkreuzstetten in Lower Austria and Slup in the Czech Republic (HARZHAUSER, 2002; 2004). Their Age ranges around 16.5 Ma.

2012

Reiter, 2012 mentioned Aporrhais cf. alata EICHWALD (= Chenopus pespelicani PHILIPPI) from the Ottnangian of Ottnang, citing Roetzel & Rupp, 1991.
