Abstract

Several palynostratigraphic events can be recognised in the uppermost Devonian and basal Carboniferous of Byelorussia, Poland and Western Europe, permitting correlation of the miospore zonations in these regions at certain key stratigraphic horizons. In ascending stratigraphic order these events are : 1. The first appearance of Knoxisporites literatus. 2. The first appearance of Hymenozonotriletes explanatus. 3. The first appearance of Verrucosisporites nitidus and Vallatisporites verrucosus. 4. The disappearance of Retispora lepidophyta.
