Abstract

Among the Orbitolininae, Palorbitolina lenticularis (Blumenbach) is a common facies marker in Upper Barremian-
Lower Aptian shallow water Mesogean deposits and was hitherto ascribed to specific, but contrasting paleoenvironments
within the carbonate platform facies suites. The Albacete-Prebetic area (SE Spain) illustrates a model in which
the Palorbitolina facies spread over the whole platform system. The development of the Palorbitolina sediments
coincided with a transgressive trend at the end of an important terrigenous period. This model could also be applied
to similar Middle Cretaceous "Orbitolina" facies.
