Notes: Semiquantitative analysis of microborer traces observed by SEM in corals, coralline algal crusts, and microbialites. Gray text = traces that are completely absent in the reef succession of the base. Photic indication = paleobathymetric interpretation derived from the ichnocoenosis in each sample. A = abundant, C = common, R = rare. Cry = cryptophotic conditions, — = no microbioerosion, eu II = shallow euphotic Zone II conditions, deu = deep euphotic conditions, dys = dysphotic conditions.
