Fig. 1. Foraminiferal organic linings from (A-L) Middle Jurassic and (M-Y) Upper Cretaceous. All linings belong the Globothalamea class. This figure presents FOLs from (A-L) Pieniny Klippen Belt and (M-Y) Basque–Cantabrian Basin coming from time intervals separated by ca. 100 Ma apart. All organic linings show similar globular growth patterns, however, Jurassic FOLs are larger than Cretaceous ones. (Godos K., Tyszka J., Radmacher W., Goleń J. (2021).
