Lower and Middle Triassic foraminifera from the Eros Limestone, Hydra Island, Greece
Abstract. The systematics and stratigraphic ranges (constrained by conodont dating) of abundant and well preserved foraminiferal faunas from six sections in the Lower and Middle Triassic Eros Limestone of central and western Hydra (Argolis Peninsula, Greece) are described. A joint analysis of the conodonts, foraminifera and bivalves has enabled the Scythian and Anisian stages to be recognized with some certainty within the Eros Limestone carbonate platform. The foraminifera have affinities with those of many other Tethyan localities, in particular the Dinarides, Balkans, Carpathians and the Southern Alps.
