Cambro-Ordovician, Silurian, Devonian and Carboniferous sediments have been identified from the base of the sedimentary cover of the Moesian Platform. Graptolites play an important role in their identification. The Arenig, Wenlock, Ludlow and Pridoli Series are present. The lower part of the Silurian consists of graptolite shale facies whilst the upper part is of mixed facies.

Key words: Graptolites, stratigraphy, Ordovician Silurian, Romania.
