Abstract


The mid-Cretaceous succession of the central Southern Alps (Trento and Verona) is mainly represented by basinal deposits of the Scaglia Variegata.In this paper, the presence of a Radiolitidae in the Scaglia Variegata of the Lessini Mountains is reported. It is the first finding of a well preserved rudist, which belongs to the Radiolitidae (Sauvagesia sp.) family. The specimen was found in Cenomanian basinal biomicrites.
