New data on Middle Triassic echinoderms from the Sudetes Mountains

Mariusz Salamon, Robert Niedźwiedzki, Reinhard Walter


This paper describes the Triassic ophiuroid genus Aspiduriella and outlines the stratigraphic ranges of crinoids and echinoids in the Lower Muschelkalk strata of the North-Sudetic Basin. It is shown that, contrary to previous opinion, echinoderm taxa occurred in the North-Sudetic Basin at the same time as in other areas of the eastern part of the Germanic Basin.
