The importance of recycling processes in the genesis of detritic material (sedimenticlastics sensu Arribas and Tortosa, 2003) has been stressed by several authors (Blatt and Jones, 1975; Ingersoll, 1983; Garrels, 1986) and several criteria for the petrographic differentiation of recycled sediments have been defined (Folk, 1974; Zuffa, 1987; Arribas et al.
