This paper focuses on the age of radiolarite sequences that are believed to be part of the sedimentary cover of the Adriatic margin; they are found structurally underneath ophiolitic mélange formations forming the base of the obducted western Vardar Ophiolitic Unit. Three sections of radiolarian chert yielded moderate to well preserved radiolarian assemblages. The age range inferred for all the three studied sections spans the Late Bajocian to Early Callovian interval.
