Abstract


Detailed micropaleontological research of the Jurassic siliceous rocks in the Pavlovic´a Brod locality, located on the eastern flanks of the Zlatar Mt. in the Internal Dinarides, adjacent to the Dinaridic Ophiolite Belt, was performed. According to the determined radiolarian associations, the investigated cherts and radiolarites are of Middle Jurassic age. Radiolarian 2-7 UAZ from late Aalenian to early Callovian have been determined for the first time.
