Abstract

The distribution of Campanian-Maastrichtian species of inoceramids, ammonites, echinoids and brachiopods is given for 23 fossil sites in the Internal Prebetic and Intermediate Units of the Betic Range in Alicante province, southeast Spain. Six main units (1-6) are recognized in the stratigraphical sections used as a reference to correlate the fossil sites of the Internal Prebetic. Four different lithologies (A-D) are distinguished in the Quipar-Jorquera Formation, the only unit surveyed in the Late Cretaceous outcrops of the Intermediate Units. 57 inoceramid, 8 ammonite, 15 echinoid and 2 brachiopod taxa have been identified and are listed in a table indicating the relative positions of their appearances at each locality. Some biostratigraphical and palaeobiogeographical observations are made on the identified species of inoceramids, ammonites and echinoids. © 1995 Academic Press Limited.
