Abstract: Here we assess the evidence for the placing of magnetic and fossil biozonal boundaries in Upper Tithonian to Lower Berriasian (Jurassic–Cretaceous boundary) sedimentary rocks on the Black Sea coast south of Theodosia (Ukraine): that is, in magnetozones M19n to M17r. We consider our earlier-published results from these sections in relation to the correlative pattern that has become well established further west in Tethys. Additionally, this is compared and contrasted with other, alternative, results from Crimea that have been published in recent times.
