FIGURE 3. Subdivisions of the Carnian stage and correlation of ammonoid, conodont and radiolarian Zones for this time interval. The stars indicate the position of the ostracod-bearing sample studied here (Spongotortilispinus moixi radiolarian. Zone) and ostracod fauna from the Kilek section (Tetraporobrachia haeckeli radiolarian Zone; Forel et al., 2017). Ammonoid zonation after Gallet et al. (1994) and Hornung et al. (2007); conodont zonation after Kozur and Mostler (1994, 1996) and Kozur (2003); radiolarian zonation after Kozur (2003), Moix et al. (2007) and Dumitrica et al. (2013).

FIGURE 5. Length/height scatter plot of Bairdiacypris sorgunensis Forel sp. nov. All specimens are from the Tetraporobrachia haeckeli radiolarian Zone, Julian, Middle Carnian, Late Triassic (Forel et al., 2017).
