Abstract

Light oriented pinnacles, developed on the surface of limestone strata and boulders in cave entrances in Sarawak, are reported. These pinnacles are erosional forms produced by boring and, on solutional action of red and blue-green algae which colonize the rock surfaces. A number of distinct morphological forms are discussed and their relationship to rock inclination and light diffusion about their colonization site is noted. The pinnacles are termed phytokarst after the initial definition coined by Folk et al. (1971).
