Late Cretaceous (Santonian-Campanian) sea lilies (Echinodermata, Crinoidea) from the glacial rafts of northwestern Poland

Research Paper

Abstract

Seven Santonian (Isocrinus? minutus, Tetracrinus jagti, Cyathidium senessei, Bourgueticrinidae indet., Notocrinidae indet., Glenotremites paradoxus, Marsupitestestudinarius) and seven Campanian (Nielsenicrinus carinatus, Austinocrinus sp., Bourgueticrinidae indet., Bourgueticrinus cf. constrictus, B. ellipticus, B.? suedicus, Roveacrinina gen. et sp. indet.) crinoid taxa from the Cretaceous glacial rafts of northwestern Poland (near Wolin Island) are described for the first time. The taphonomy and palaeogeographic implications are discussed. The present assemblage differs taxonomically from the crinoid faunules recently described from the glacial rafts of eastern Poland. However, these faunules are similar to crinoids from the autochthonous Upper Cretaceous sediments of southern and eastern Poland (Miechów Trough, Kraków-Częstochowa Upland, Middle Vistula River valley). An update of Late Cretaceous crinoids from the Miechów Trough and Kraków-Częstochowa Upland is also given.

Kurzfassung

Aus pleistozänen Geschieben Nordwest-Polens (Raum Wolin) werden jeweils sieben Crinoiden-Taxa aus dem Santon (Isocrinus? minutus, Tetracrinus jagti, Cyathidium senessei, Bourgueticrinidae indet., Notocrinidae indet., Glenotremites paradoxus, Marsupitestestudinarius) und aus dem Coniac (Nielsenicrinus carinatus, Austinocrinus sp., Bourgueticrinidae indet., Bourgueticrinus cf. constrictus, B. ellipticus, B.? suedicus, Roveacrinina gen. et sp. indet.) erstmals für diese Region beschrieben. Taphonomie und paläogeographische Bedeutung werden diskutiert. Die vorgefundene Fauna unterscheidet sich taxonomisch deutlich von kürzlich beschriebenen Crinoiden aus pleistozänen Geschieben Ost-Polen, welche Crinoiden-Assoziationen autochthoner oberkretazischer Sedimente Süd- und Ost-Polens ähneln (Miechów Trog, Kraków-Częstochowa Hochland, mittleres Vistula Tal). Abschließend wird eine Aktualisierung der oberkretazischen Crinoiden aus dem Bereich des Miechów Trogs und des Kraków-Częstochowa Hochlands präsentiert.
