Abstract

The peloidal sediments occur in confined cavities and in open spaces between reef framebuilders; the peloidal crusts generally coat calcareous sponges and tabulozoans. The peloids are not detrital grains or fecal pellets; they are precipitates, possibly resulting from bacterial activity. -from Author
