Description :
The Hercynian remnants present within the Alpidic structural zones of the Southern Alps are reviewed. The pattern of Hercynian metamorphism is zonal from granulites in the western area to anchimetamorphic facies in the eastern one. In the folded zone at the eastern margin a severe Hercynian folding phase took place during the Westphalian. Thrust sheets comprising sequences of different facies ranging in age from Caradocian to early Westphalian are sutured by late Westphalian molasse deposits. The assumption that the Southern Alps and the external Dinarides remained outside the Hercynian folding front is contradicted by field evidence.
