Abstract


Microfauna occurring in the marls of Frydek type (grey marls in the Subsilesian, Silesian units and Baculites Marls in the Skole unit) in the Polish Outer Carpathians are discussed. The Campanian and Maestrichtian assemblages have been found in the Subsilesian as wellas the Maestrichtian ones in the Silesian and Skole units. The Frydek Marls have been formed in the final stage the submarine slumps at the boundary of the shelf and bathyal zones. They have more outer position than the variegated facies.
