The Moldanubian zone is characterized by an abundance of Late Hercynian plutonic rocks of predominantly granitoid composition. These rocks are considered to be parts of one of the principal magmatic complexes — the Moldanubian (South Bohemian) Pluton and the Central Bohemian Pluton. Since both the large magmatic masses are of polygenetic batholithic character and are composed of several plutons, they are termed plutonic complexes in the following text. Some intrusive bodies exhibit rather independent characteristics and this is true especially for abundant dark ultrapotassic rocks and some dyke swarms.
