A comparison between the Kess-kess of Hmar Lakhdad (Emsian, Morocco) and the mud mounds of the Philippeville Anticlinorium (Frasnian, Belgium)



A comparison between the Kess-kess of Hmar Lakhdad (Emsian, Morocco) and the mud mounds of the Philippeville Anticlinorium (Frasnian, Belgium)



Geologica Belgica 1(1): 17-31



The Kess-kess of Hmar Lakhdad are Devonian mud mounds, located SE of Erfoud (Moroccan Antiatlas). Fenestral structures, which are very abundant, occur from the base to the top of most buildups. These structures are classified in two groups: stromatactis s.s. and stromatactoid fenestrae, each of them showing a high morphological variability. These fenestrae look very similar to the structures already described from the Belgian mud mounds.
