Abstract (in english)
   Re-investigation of macrofossils and samples from the type yielded a Late Turonian age of the Klement Formation at its type section Klement (Lower Austria). The nannofossil assemblage is representative for the basal part of the CC13 Zone, which is correlated with the UC9 Zone (BURNETT 1998) and corresponds to the interval from the upper part of Middle Turonian to lower part of Late Turonian-Early Coniacian age, the Inoceramidae the interval between the Mutiloides incertus Zone (Late Turonian) and the Cremnoceramus crassus Zone (Early Coniacian) of the European Temperate Province. The ammonites Subprionocyclus hitchinensis BILLINGHURST and Subprionocyclus cf. neptuni (GEINITZ) are markers for a Late Turonian age. Microfauna and nannofloras from selected localities in the Austrian Waschberg Unit which corresponds to the Ždánice Unit indicate Middle Coniacian to Late Maastrichtian age of the Pálava Formation
