Fragments of echinoderms in the Karaisali Limestone (Miocene) of the Adana Basin, Turkey, show large syntaxial overgrowths which are restricted mostly to their undersides, whilst the upper surfaces are covered by micrite. Although this pendant style of the overgrowths is reminiscent of vadose zone ‘gravitational cement', they appear to have formed in the open voids of sediments in the marine environment, simultaneously with, as well as after, the internal deposition of micrite.
