  Abstract:  The Piatra Şoimului klippe belongs to the allochtonous sedimentary succession of the Transylvanian Nappes in the Rarău Syncline. It is situated on the western flank of the syncline over the Callovian ľ Oxfordian jaspers. The identified micropaleotologic association consists of dasycladales, foraminifera, sphynctozoa, echinoderms, etc. which indicate PelsonianľNorian age. The microfacies of these limestones demonstrate the origin of Piatra Şoimului klippe from a previously carbonate platform situated to the west of the Bucovinian sedimentary domain. The correlation between the allochemic and ortochemic components described in the numerous microfacies types proves that the Triassic sedimentation took place in an internal platform domain.
