Pseudomarssonella REDMOND 1965 (Foraminifera) and related taxa from the Jurassic platform carbonate succession of the Central Taurides, S Turkey: its phylogenetic relation with the subfamily Paleopfenderininae

TASLI, Kemal
Altıner, Demir
Pseudomarssonella and related taxa have been recorded in the upper part of the Redmondoides lugeoni/Redmondoides cf. rotundatus Zone, Paleopfenderina trochoidea-salernitana and Kurnubia ex. gr. palastiniensis zones, and the lower half of the Clypeina jurassica Zone, from the Bathonian to the lower Tithonian of the Central Taurides (S Turkey) inner platform carbonate succession. A tentative phylogenetic tree of the Jurassic pfenderinids (paleopfenderins) is given in this study. The Paleopfenderininae are suggested to have evolved from Pseudomarssonella REDMOND 1965 which might have diverged from Redmondoides BANNER et al. 1991 or Riyadhella REDMOND 1965. This evolution was carried out during the early Bathonian by the acquisition of accessory, cribrate apertural plate and more numbers of chambers per whorl. Pseudomarssonella has been removed from the family Chrysalidinidae (subfamily Paravalvulininae) since it is phylogenetically and taxonomically separated from Paravalvulina, which is fundamentally triserial, has cribrate septal flap as a prolongation of septum and has no secondary infillings. Herein it is placed into the family Pfenderinidae, subfamily Paleopfenderininae.


Use of sedimentary structures in the recognition of sequence boundaries in Upper Jurassic-Upper Cretaceous peritidal carbonates of the Western Taurides, Turkey
Yılmaz, İsmail Ömer; Altıner, Demir (Informa UK Limited, 2001-08-01)
Subtidal, intertidal, and supratidal carbonate facies are recognized in the Upper Jurassic (Kimmeridgian)-Upper Cretaceous (Cenomanian) peritidal carbonates of the Fele area (Western Taurides, Turkey). Vertical stacking patterns of these facies are of a cyclical character, shallowing upward is the trend of the cyclicity in these carbonate facies. In-situ karstic breccias, collapse breccias, caliche (laminar calcrete), "Microcodium" accretion, and root casts are structures commonly indicative of third-order ...
Carnian (Upper Triassic) Lavas and Tuffites from the Mersin Melange: Evidence for Intraoceanic Arc Rifting in the Northern Neotethys
Sayıt, Kaan; TEKİN, UĞUR KAĞAN; Okuyucu, Cengiz (University of Chicago Press, 2020-09-01)
In Anatolia, the northern branch of Neotethys is represented by Izmir-Ankara-Erzincan (IAE) Ocean, whose fragments and associated continental entities are preserved in the IAE Suture. However, the traces of this northerly located ocean are not solely bound to the IAE Suture, but can also be found further to the south. The Mersin Melange, situated in southern Turkey, is such a place that preserves the southerly transported remnants of the northern Neotethys. The Mersin Melange essentially displays block-in-m...
Rapid cooling history of a Neotethyan ophiolite: Evidence for contemporaneous subduction initiation and metamorphic sole formation

The Beywhir-Hoyran Nappes, including Mesozoic carbonate platform rocks, deepsea sediments, and ophiolite-related units, crop out extensively on the western limb of the Isparta Angle in the Central Taurides, Turkey. The ophiolite-related rocks are represented by variably serpentinized harzburgitic mantle tectonites, tectonically underlain by a subophiolitic metamorphic sole and melange. The harzburgitic mantle tectonites and metamorphic sole are intruded by undeformed isolated dikes. Protoliths of the metamo...
Erosional truncation of uppermost Permian shallow-marine carbonates and implications for Permian-Triassic boundary events
Payne, Jonathan L.; Lehrmann, Daniel J.; Follett, David; Seibel, Margaret; Kump, Lee R.; Riccardi, Anthony; Altıner, Demir; Sano, Hiroyoshi; Wei, Jiayong (Geological Society of America, 2007-07-01)
On shallow-marine carbonate buildups in south China, Turkey, and Japan, uppermost Permian skeletal limestones are truncated by an erosional surface that exhibits as much as 10 cm of topography, including overhanging relief. Sedimentary facies, microfabrics, carbon isotopes, and cements together suggest that erosion occurred in a submarine setting. Moreover, biostratigraphic data from south China demonstrate that the surface postdates the uppermost Permian sequence boundary at the global stratotype section a...
Palaeomagnetic evolution of the Cankiri Basin (central Anatolia, Turkey): implications for oroclinal bending due to indentation
Kaymakcı, Nuretdin; Langereis, Cor; White, Stan; van Dijk, Paul (Cambridge University Press (CUP), 2003-05-01)
Palaeomagnetic data in combination with palaeostress data and anisotropy of magnetic susceptibility orientations are utilized to develop a tectonic evolutionary model for the Early Tertiary part of the Omega(omega)-shaped Cankiri Basin (Turkey). The results reveal clockwise rotations in the northeast and anticlockwise rotations in the west and southeastern corner of the basin. The magnetic inclinations indicate a northward drift of the Cankiri Basin and support an indentation model for the Kirsehir Block. I...
