Abstract


Lithified thrombolites in the Ensenada de La Paz, B.C.S., Mexico
The beaches of the Ensenada de La Paz, B.C.S., México are bordered by sediment for mations of cyanophytic origin identified as recent thrombolites that represented the first record of live thrombolites for the region and México. In a later exploration, lithified thrombolites were discovered at Estero Zacatecas on the angle formed by El Mogote and the coastline, behind the mangrove fringe. It is feasible that the process of thrombolitic formation may have triggered the birth of the El Mogote sand bar.
