'Cipit Limestone', Kasimlar Beds, Terziler (Isparta), Western Taurus (Triassic of Turkey)

Where: Turkey (37.8° N, 31.1° E: paleocoordinates 3.3° N, 24.4° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Tuvalian (232.0 - 221.5 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified reef rocks and lithified wackestone

• 'Cipit Limestone' blocks: reworked carbonate reef blocks within basinal deposits
• 'Cipit Limestone' blocks 'composed' of four different facieszones: in the same frequency bafflestones (in some parts framestone) and wackestones, while pelsparite grainstones and oncoidal grainstones rarely occure

Size classes: macrofossils, microfossils

Collection methods: bulk, peel or thin section,

• Material deposited at the Institute of Paleontology, University of Erlangen
