Taphonomy
Modes of preservation:body
Size of fossils:macrofossils
Preservation of anatomical detail:excellent
Collection methods and comments
Collection excludes:some macrofossils
Collection methods:surface (in situ),field collection
Reason for describing collection:taxonomic analysis
Collectors:V. Reshetov, R. Barsbold Collection dates:1972
Collection method comments: A broad collection that might include the collection #1157, but necessary because of nomenclatural variation from authors to authors, and also because the stratigraphic position of Gobiates khermeentsavi in the locality section is unknown. Distinct from PMPE and other collections from the same general site.
