Palynological data from the Devonian-Carboniferous boundary beds in the new Stockum trench II and the Hasselbachtal borehole, northern Rhenish Massif, Germany
Two new sections displaying the Devonian-Carboniferous Boundary beds at Stockum and in the Hasselbachtal borehole have been palynologically investigated. Twenty eight productive samples have been obtained and the miospore assemblages are assigned to the LN and VI Miospore biozones. Retispora lepidophyta diminishes rapidly in numbers at the top of the LN Biozone in both sections thus allowing recognition of typical and transitional LN Biozone assemblages. The LN/VI Biozonal boundary is accurately located within the uppermost 45 cm of the Hangenberg Shales in both sections. The correlation of the miospore data with the goniatite and conodont faunas is discussed.
