Late Burdigalian to Langhian series (nannoplankton zones NN3 to NN5) are overlying unconformably, or are imbricated with Mesozoic strata of different ages. A description of the marine Cala d’Hort formation is given, which is overlain by the brackish to continental Cape Jueu formation. Based on micropaleontological studies, the presence of Aquitanian is doubtful. The interpretation of a “Langhian fore-deep” with “sedimentary klippen” is discussed. A comparison of the sedimentary sequences and biostratigraphy between Eivissa (Ibiza), the eastern Pre-Betics and Majorca is given.
