    Abstract

    A detailed study of the palynology and palynofacies of the Fjerritslev Formation (Lower Jurassic-basal Middle Jurassic) has resulted in the definition of four spore/pollen zones and four dinoflagellate cyst zones. The combined spore/pollen and dinoflagellate cyst zonation has resulted in a detailed biostratigraphical subdivision of the sequences studied. A new combination, Manumia delcourtii (Pocock 1970) nov. comb. et emend., is proposed here, and the species description emended. The kerogen assemblages recorded from the Fjerritslev Formation, indicate a marine depositional environment, with a high but variable influence of terrestrially-derived organic particles. The Fjerritslev Formation does not generally represent a potential source rock for oil. -from Author
