Ostracods and the middle Miocene evolution of the Bugojno Basin (Bosnia and Herzegovina)

Abstract

In the present study, the taxonomical and palaeoecological interpretations of non-marine ostracod assemblages from the Gračanica opencast coal mine are summarised. The results revealed three different ostracod assemblages within a 40-m succession. The oldest ostracod assemblage from the lower part of the section consisted primarily of pioneer species Fabaeformiscandona cf. pokornyi, Vestalenula cylindrica, Paralimnocythere rostrata, Cyclocypris ovum and Mediocypris cf. candonaeformis. Determined ostracods indicated a very shallow environment, with a low water energy. The second ostracod assemblage with the dominant species Cypridopsis cf. biplanata in the middle part of the succession corresponded to a shallow littoral environment, rich in vegetation with gradual water deepening. The third ostracod assemblage occurred in the upper part of the Gračanica section. Generally, marly sediments of the upper part of the succession contained abundant, thin, transparent and very poorly preserved ostracod valves that belonged to Candonidae gen. et sp. indet. taxon typical for a lake environment.

Acknowledgements

I am grateful to the editor Oleg Mandic (Natural History Museum, Vienna) who collected and gave me samples for ostracod analyses and for his useful comments of the previous version of the article. Sincere thanks to Elsa Gliozzi (Roma Tre University, Roma) for support with ostracod taxonomy of the genus Sagmatocythere. Laboratory sample preparation and SEM images of the valves were taken using the facilities of the Department of Geology, Croatian Geological Survey in Zagreb. I would like to thank Marija Horvat for her assistance in the SEM images of the ostracod fauna. Finally, I thank the reviewers Alan Lord (Senckenberg Research Institute, Frankfurt am Main, Germany) and Ljupko Rundić (University of Belgrade, Faculty of Mining and Geology, Serbia) whose comments and suggestions helped to improve the quality of the present manuscript.
