Abstract


Red-coloured laminated wackestones to packstones of the filament (Bositra-like) microfacies occurringwithin crinoidal limestones of the Smolegowa Limestone Formation in the Babiarzowa Klippe (Pieniny Klippen Belt, Carpathians) represent infilling of subhorizontal neptunian dyke of Callovian age. The locality is well-known in geological literature as it yielded the rich fossil assemblage of Callovian age (ammonites, gastropods, pelecypods, brachiopods and others) described by Uhlig (1878, 1881).
