Abstract: Ribeiro et al. [2007] have presented a geodynamic view of the SW Iberia Variscides based on data from Portugal. Their treatment of already published data is commendable, and the knowledge gained will surely encourage the discussion of the SWEurope Variscides. However, in our opinion, Ribeiro et al.’s modeling and interpretation of the Ediacaran–Lower Ordovician ( 560–470 Ma) geodynamic evolution are of limited value. In this regard, they based their analysis of the Ossa-Morena Zone (OMZ) on assumptions which are contradicted by recent published data. Ribeiro et al. ignored recent progress in the OMZ Ediacaran-Ordovician stratigraphy and, as a consequence they misunderstood the structure of domains overprinted by strong Variscan (Carboniferous) deformation and metamorphism.
