The geochemical features of spilitic basalts and the radiolarian fauna of associated pelagic sediments have been studied from two different sections of the Alakircay Nappe of the Antalya Nappes, SW Turkey. The first section in Cukurkoy is located in the eastern part of the Antalya Gulf and includes thick spilitic basalts, overlain by an alternation of mudstone, marl and pelagic cherty limestone. Radiolarian data from the cherty limestone in this unit reveals a middle Carnian age for this section.
