Abstract

The fusulinid limestones were deposited in an equatorial belt of open ocean, distant from the New Zealand Gondwana margin, where climate contrasted markedly with the cold environment of continental New Zealand represented by the Parapara Peak sequence. They were part of a Tethyan area of deposition now widely dispersed in North America, New Zealand, and Southeast Asia by subsequent sea-floor spreading and accretion onto the continents bordering the Paleo-Pacific.
