Carnian metapelites from the southeastern segment of the Mürzalpen Nappe (Northern Calcareous Alps, Eastern Alps) were heated to 280-310 °C, estimated by Raman spectroscopy of carbonaceous material (RSCM). This temperature range is correlated to a Color Alteration Index of 5.0-6.5, determined on conodonts from adjacent Anisian to Norian carbonates. Average RSCM temperatures estimated on the conodonts are biased towards higher temperatures. The spectral characteristics of the conodont apatite suggest a composition altered during progressive recrystallization, influencing the band parameters of the included carbonaceous matter. Consequently, accurate conodont RSCM thermometry needs an assessment of apatite alteration.
