AbstractCoral fragments, crinoidal debris and foraminifers found in limestone beds near Moeche (Galicia) are evidence of a Devonian-Silurian age for the strata in the greenschist facies belt around Cabo Ortegal, hitherto considered on the Spanish 1:200,000 map-La Coruña Hoja 1 (IGME), to be Precambrian in age. Their deposition by turbidity currents into troughs on an ancient ocean floor is being suggested.
