Foraminifers, sponge spicules, conodonts, and holothurian sclerites are recognized in the Korytnica Limestones at Liptovska Osada (West Carpathians, Slovakia). Five new holothurian sclerite species are erected, namely Eocaudina liptovskaensis sp.n., Kuehnites slovakensis sp.n., Praecaudina mostleri sp.n., Theelia liptovskaensis sp.n., and Theelia trammeri sp.n. The Korytnica Limestones are assigned to the Lower Carnian (Cordevolian), basing upon the entire microfossil assemblage. The Korytnica Limestones are also demonstrated to be time equivalent to the Upper Cassian Beds of the Dolomites.
