Peloids are ubiquitous components in modern and fossil carbonates. The term peloid is non-genetic because the origin of these grains and the pathways of their formation are not fully understood. Based on Berriasian material originating from Dorset, southern England, we report here on peloids that result from the more or less in-place breakdown of previously micritized bivalve shells. The continuum from shell breakdown to peloids is documented by petrography and observation by scanning electron… Expand
