Valdepena Limestone Quarry (Triassic to of Italy)

Where: Udine, Italy (46.4° N, 12.5° E: paleocoordinates 6.5° N, 23.4° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Anisian to Anisian (247.2 - 237.0 Ma)

• De Toni (1913) considers the faunal composition most comparable to that of Wengen, which is Anisian in age; the fauna is probably collected from beds which are Anisian - Ladinian

Environment/lithology: gray, red limestone

Size class: macrofossils
