The uppermost Paleozoic metaclastic sequences of the Pelagonian zone in northern Greece are connected to the western margin of the zone. They represent paleogeographic conditions of a deltaic environment and continental slope, which are related to the separation of the Paleozoic continent and the initial rifting in the western ophiolite belt in Greece. The metaclastic sequences define the western (external) boundary of the Pelagonian zone, and are used to find the continuation of this boundary in the Sporades and Oinouses islands in the Aegean Sea, in order to help answer the question of the connection between the Hellenides and the Taurides in Turkey.
