The magnetic stratigraphy of a 110-m section of the Early Cretaceous Maiolica pelagic limestone in the Bosso valley (Umbria, Italy) shows clearly defined magnetozones that are correlated with the geomagnetic polarity record derived from the M-sequence marine magnetic anomalies M19 to M14, and possibly M13. Using an established paleontological zonation of this section based on calpionellids, the position of the Jurassic-Cretaceous boundary is located close to the base of the negative magnetozone corresponding to anomaly M17.
