UB 7111, Cladach a'Ghlinne (Jurassic of the United Kingdom)

Also known as Loch Scavaig, Elgol

Where: Scotland, United Kingdom (57.2° N, 6.1° W: paleocoordinates 46.4° N, 4.6° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Kilmaluag Formation (Great Estuarine Group), Bathonian (168.3 - 166.1 Ma)

• "Ostracod Limestone"

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal or restricted shallow subtidal; gray, blue marl

• The sediments of the G.E.S. were probably laid down in large, quiet, shallow, warm lagoons, not open directly to the sea, with the sandy beds of the succession indicating river deltas.
• The marlstones are dark blue-grey in colour, but weather to a very much paler hue

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Holotype—NHMUK PV R37110, an associated partial skel- eton in three contiguous blocks consisting of: seven vertebrae (four dorsals, one caudal, and two that are too poorly preserved to identify with certainty); fragments of the sternum and pelvis; a complete scapulocoracoid; and multiple elements of the forelimb (including wrist bones and a complete wing-metacarpal) and hind limb.
