Where: Halland, Sweden (56.3° N, 13.3° E: paleocoordinates 45.2° N, 12.8° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Late/Upper Albian (105.3 - 99.6 Ma)

• Haegg (1930, 1935) discusses the Tormarpchalk as Mammillatenkrita/Mammillaten zone. The informal swedish B. mammillatus zone belongs to the uppermost Lower Campanian. In 1940 Haegg discusses the faunal assemblage as most probably belonging to the Inflaticeras inflatum zone (Late Albian), and possibly as well to the Pecten asper zone (Lower Cenomanian).
