ABSTRACT

An Upper Jurassic (Oxfordian and lower Kimmeridgian) reef complex is well exposed in the area of Slovenia, northwestern Yugoslavia. This reef complex is thought to be a barrier-reef that developed along the shelf-margin of an ancient carbonate platform. From basin to lagoon the following subdivisions have been delineated: a fore-reef area characterized by carbonate breccias and blocks of reef debris; a central reef area with abundant hydrozoans and corals that can be further subdivided into actinostromariid and parastromatoporid zones; and, a back-reef area with locally developed lagoons and patch-reefs defined as the Cladocoropsis zone.
