DVR-1, Dovje, the western Southern Karavanks.
?Backreef carbonate platform (implied by the lithofacies and lithological geometry), rel. short distance landwards from the reef belt i.e. within a zone with sufficient circulation providing stable normal marine salinity required by stenohalinous crinoids
The abundant crinoid remnants at the site and spherical shape of the coral indicate the coral (suspension feeder) was probably epizoic on erect crinoid stem thus gaining an advantage by feeding in higher-velocity currents above the seafloor.
