Peraluminous granites and trondhjemites make up small plutonic bodies intruded into high-grade paragneisses in the Peloritani Mountains, marking the beginning of late Variscan granitoid magmatism in southernmost Italy. The granites range from low-Ca monzogranites to alkali feldspar granites, while the trondhjemites vary from trondhjemites s.s. to low-Ca trondhjemites. Relatively high radiogenic (87Sr/86Sr)i ratios (mostly from 0.7073 to 0.7125) and negative εNd values (mostly from −5.66 to −8.73) point to crustal sources for all the granitoids. Major and trace element compositions indicate an absence of genetic relationships between the trondhjemites s.s. and...
