Ordovician gastropods from pebbles in Cretaceous fluvial sandstones in south-east Disko, West Greenland

Abstract [en]

The gastropods Sinuopea sp. and Lecanospira cf. compacta (Salter 1859) of probable early Ordovician age are described from cherty limestone clasts within fluvial strata of the Cretaceous Atane Formation of south-east Disko, central West Greenland. The record of Sinuopea possibly suggests an earliest Ordovician (Tremadocian) age, slightly older than the Floian-Dapingian age suggested by the oldest known conodont assemblages described from West Greenland. The determinations provide supporting evidence for a former periodic cover of Ordovician strata in the Archaean terrane of south western Greenland, extending deep into the heart of the Laurentian landmass.
