Riding, James B.. 2007 A palynological investigation of a Middle Jurassic Limestone from the Malton area, North Yorkshire. Nottingham, UK, British Geological Survey, 8pp. (OR/07/014) (Unpublished)Before downloading, please read NORA policies.
The sample yielded rare Jurassic pollen and spores which are not age diagnostic. Therefore, based on these data, no conclusion as to the biostratigraphical age is possible. Various lines of evidence, such as the organic leanness and the diverse macrofauna of this unit, point towards a correlation with the Lebberston Member of the Cloughton Formation. However, these factors are not conclusive, and a study of the beds surrounding the limestone unit is strongly recommended.
