    Identification of palaeocontinental affinities is important to place Moesia in the global context of palaeogeographical reconstructions. In the absence of palaeomagnetic data and relevant macrofauna, palynological data and especially chitinozoans represent an important tool, recently used to unravel palaeogeographical affinities. Chitinozoans from three main boreholes (Calarasi 2881, Zavoaia 2581 and Tandarei 1052) located in East Moesia have been studied. They indicate a predominant palaeogeographical affinity with northern Gondwana.
