The compilation of detailed stratigraphic, sedimentologic and paleontologic data resulted in stratigraphic correlations of marine and continental areas outcropping today in the Tethyan and Peri-Tethyan domains: (1) the base of the Moscovian would correspond to the base of the Westphalian C in the Peri-Tethyan domain and to the base of Westphalian B in the Tethyan domain; (2) the Kasimovian, the Gzhelian and the Orenburgian would correspond in the northern Peri-Tethyan domain and Tethyan domain (Carnic Alps) respectively to the early Stephanian, the late Stephanian and the Autunian p.p. , in the southern Peri-Tethyan domain to an undifferentiated time interval. The boundary between the Stephanian and the Autunian was recognized in the Donets Basin with some doubts; (3) the Asselian, Sakmarian, Artinskian and Kungurian would correspond in all the domains to the Autunian p.p. and the Saxonian that remain difficult to separate.
