Abstract (in english)
   Inter-regional correlation in the Barremian is impossible because of strong biotic differentiation between realms coupled with a lack of obvious non-biostratigraphic markers to provide good boundaries. Thus we have chosen the best of the limited options available to define boundaries within the Tethyan Realm. We recommend that the base of the Barremian be placed at the base of the Spitidiscus hugii ammonite Zone in the Río Argos section, SE Spain. Supplementary information will be compiled to fully document this choice before formal submission via the Cretaceous Subcommission to the Commission on Stratigraphy. The base of the Upper Barremian should be defined by the first appearance of the ammonite Ancyloceras vandenheckei in one of the Subbetic sections in SE Spain, probably section X.KV (Barrano de Cavila, Caravaca). Other sections in the region require further documentation before that final recommendation can be made
