Abstract In the Evia Island, our own investigations brought palaeoenvironmental informations in direct comparison with other Palaeozoic sequences of Greece. The sedimentary sequences occurring in northern Evia are overlaying the Variscan metaplutonic and metasedimentary rocks of Edipsos, Aghios and Rovies regions attributed to the Pelagonian basement (Vavassis et al. 2001). They are of Late Permian to Middle Triassic age and, in many cases, younger rocks underlay older lithologies, so that all formations are folded together or imbricated. The sedimentological characters and age of northern Evia carbonates display strong similarities with Upper Paleozoic formations from other places in Greece (i.e. Hydra, Skyros, Othrys, Attica, Salamine, Cyclades, Peloponnesus, Crete, Lesbos, Chios). There, Carboniferous and mainly Permian carbonates, crop out within the siliciclastic beds occurring at the base of the Mesozoic neritic platform of the internal Pelagonian domain.
