The Cellon section, located in the Carnic Alps, is a reference section for the Silurian of the world. The conodont association of the section is revised according to the most recent taxonomy and the biostratigraphy updated in the basis of the recently published zonation schemes. Seventy taxa (species and subspecies) belonging to 23 genera have been identified, allowing the discrimination of fifteen biozones from the upper Llandovery to the end of the Pridoli. However, some of the uppermost Llandovery and Wenlock biozones, corresponding to black shale intervals, have not been documented.

Abstract

The Cellon section, located in the Carnic Alps, is a reference section for the Silurian of the world. The conodont association of the section is revised according to the most recent taxonomy and the biostratigraphy updated in the basis of the recently published zonation schemes. Seventy taxa (species and subspecies) belonging to 23 genera have been identified, allowing the discrimination of fifteen biozones from the upper Llandovery to the end of the Pridoli. However, some of the uppermost Llandovery and Wenlock biozones, corresponding to black shale intervals, have not been documented.
