Abstract

The diversity of rudists In the Lower Cretaceous of Arabia offers great potential both for biostratigraphical correlation (particularly of certain key levels, such as the Lower/Upper Aptian boundary) and for facies analysis. With the aim of raising awareness of this potential among geologists working on core and outcrop material, we provide here synoptic diagnoses of the seventeen species (at least) so far recognized, together with comments on their stratigraphical distributions and paleoecology, and a range chart.
