Central and western Paratethys (Early and Middle Badenian)


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

  • "Thereafter, with the onset of the Middle Miocene, the documentation booms and tonnoidean-bearing Badenian assemblages are known from the entire Paratethys area. The northernmost localities are those in Poland with Korytnica as the most important one. It formed during the early Badenian along the northern coast of a branch of the Paratethys Sea that covered the Carpathian foredeep. Contemporaneous localities of early Badenian age (c. 16–15 Ma.) are Grund, Immendorf and Weitendorf (Austria), Várpalota (Hungary) and Lapugiu de Sus (= Lapugy) and Costeiu de Sus (= Kostej) in Romania. The classical Austrian assemblages from Vöslau, Baden, Sooß, Gainfarn, Enzesfeld, Traiskirchen, Möllersdorf, Walbersdorf and Pfaffstätten are late early to middle Badenian (c. 14.5–13.6 Ma). Slightly younger localities of Late Badenian age (c. 13.6–12.8 Ma) are Forchtenau, Pötzleinsdorf and Grinzing in Austria and Devínska Nová Ves (Slovak Republic). For many other Badenian localities, mentioned in the Distribution chapters in the systematic part, a precise dating within the Badenian is not known."

The following Stromboidea lived in the Paratethys of the Langhian:

North Sea Basin

The upper part of the Hemmoorian and the lower part of the Reinbekian correlate with the Langhian.

The following Stromboidea lived in the North Sea Basin of the Langhian:
