New radiolarian ages for blocks of radiolarian cherts associated with other blocks of distal pelagic facies and ophiolitic lithologies within the Lycian Mélange, SW Turkey, indicate deposition during Mid-Jurassic to Early Cretaceous time. Radiolarites overlying pink pelagic limestones of an allochthonous carbonate unit accumulated during the Mid- to Late Jurassic. On the basis of structural evidence the Lycian Mélange is inferred to have been rooted within the Northern Neotethys, to the north of the Tauride–Anatolide microcontinent. The Lycian radiolarites can be compared with other dated radiolarites from the Izmir–Ankara suture, the root zone of the Northern Neotethyan ocean. Based...
