Abstract


Study of carbonate facies from Cretaceous lithostratigraphic units of Peru has led to the identification of calcareous algae, mainly Dasycladales (Apinella hispanica, Salpingoporella? hasi, Korkyrella sp., Neomeris spp., Trinocladus divnae, and Terquemella spp.), mostly from Cenomanian strata. These algae represent the first records of these taxa on the Pacific margin of South America, in a back-arc setting.
