This paper focuses on the «Alpine» CaporalinoSant’Angelo Unit outcropping between Corte and Ponte Leccia (NE Corsica). The achieved results show that the Caporalino-Sant’Angelo Unit is a Middle Eocene clastic prism, accumulated in a basin located between the European continental margin and the deforming Corsican accretionary wedge. Consequently, the previous hypothesis that considers the Caporalino-Sant’Angelo Unit as a Middle Jurassic to Eocene stratigraphic succession sedimented in a distensive basin on the European continental margin is rejected, and the early hypothesis that considers the Caporalino-Sant’Angelo Unit as a clastic Eocene unit is partly recover.

This paper focuses on the «Alpine» CaporalinoSant’Angelo Unit outcropping between Corte and Ponte Leccia (NE Corsica). The achieved results show that the Caporalino-Sant’Angelo Unit is a Middle Eocene clastic prism, accumulated in a basin located between the European continental margin and the deforming Corsican accretionary wedge. Consequently, the previous hypothesis that considers the Caporalino-Sant’Angelo Unit as a Middle Jurassic to Eocene stratigraphic succession sedimented in a distensive basin on the European continental margin is rejected, and the early hypothesis that considers the Caporalino-Sant’Angelo Unit as a clastic Eocene unit is partly recover.
