The Culm siliciclastic turbidite sequence of Uppermost Viséan-Namurian age exposed on the northern shore of Minorca Island contains numerous trace fossils: Dictyodora, Lophoctenium, Nereites, Callictenium, Arthrophycus, Palaleodictyon, Laevicyclus that belong to the Nereites association. This asemblage characteristic for fine-grained overbank subfacies is strongly dominated by abundant meandring (Dictyodora) and branching (Lophoctenium) fodinichnia. The rare trace fossils (dominichnia) of Skolithos association occur in sandstone-rich overbank subfacies of turbidite system.
