Eocene (Lutetian) Shark-Rich Coastal Paleoenvironments of the Southern North Sea Basin in Europe: Biodiversity of the Marine Fürstenau Formation Including Early White and Megatooth Sharks

Figure 6

Bored and drilled beach pebbles from the Middle Eocene (Lutetian) gravels at Dalum. Only softer rock types, such as iron-carbonate concretions (Valanginian-Hauterivian, Lower Cretaceous) and phosphorite nodules, or wood (Paleocene-Eocene, Paleogene) were drilled by bivalves or were chemically dissoluted by sponges. (1) Large Gastrochaenolites boreholes in reworked Lower Cretaceous iron-carbonate concretion pebble (SCB no. Dal-Invert-2). (2) Small Gastrochaenolithes boreholes in reworked Eocene phosphorite (SCB no. Dal-Invert-1). (3) Small Gastrochaenolithes boreholes in reworked Lower Cretaceous iron-carbonate concretion pebble (SCB no. Dal-Invert-3). (4) Small boreholes made by Clione-type sponges in reworked Eocene phosphorite (SCB no. Dal-Invert-4). (5) Boreholes of the bivalve Teredo sp. in Paleogene (Eocene) silicified driftwood (SCB no. Dal-Invert-6). (6) Boreholes of the bivalve Teredo sp. in silicificated Eocene driftwood pieces (SCB no. Dal-Invert-7). (7) Boreholes in reworked Lower Cretaceous ammonite fragment, iron-carbonate concretion (SCB no. Dal-Invert-5a). (8) Small Gastrochaenolithes boreholes in reworked Lower Cretaceous orthicon ammonite fragment (Bochianites), iron-carbonate concretion (SCB no. Dal-Invert-5b).
