The Moesian Platform is a crustal block within southern Europe, located beyond the southwestern margin of the East European craton. Along this margin lie terranes that were accreted to Baltica as part of Far Eastern Avalonia during Late Ordovician–Early Devonian time and terranes that already formed part of Cambrian Baltica, displaced as proximal terranes together with Far East Avalonian terranes. The tectonic history and crustal affinity of the Moesian Platform, however, remain poorly understood. A review of available tectonostratigraphic, paleontological, and geochronologic data suggests that the Moesian Platform comprises four distinct terranes, two with Baltican and two with Avalonian affinities....
