Facies distribution on a carbonate ramp controlled by underground relief and subsidence (Late Eocene of the eastern Alpine Foreland Basin)

 

8. Peyssonneliacean Facies

Peyssonneliacean limestones are dominated by subsphaerical aggregates of laminar peyssonneliacean algae, forming rudstones with a micritic matrix.

Present-day equvalents are known from circumlittoral soft-bottoms of the Mediterranean, where they are directly growing on the soft substratum.
