Huangbanjigou, Shangyuan Town, NIGP collection (Cretaceous of China)

Where: Liaoning, China (41.6° N, 120.8° E: paleocoordinates 44.5° N, 122.3° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Yixian Formation, Early/Lower Aptian (125.5 - 122.5 Ma)

• U-Pb dating suggests that the Huangbanjigou section ranges from 124.9 ± 1.7 Ma to 122.8 ± 1.6 Ma (Yang et al., 2007). Chang et al. (2017) obtained Ar/Ar ages of 125.8 ± 1.0 Ma and 126.0 ± 0.8 Ma from the Lujiatun Unit, the lowest part of the Yixian Formation, below the lacustrine shales.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lacustrine - large; lithified, tuffaceous mudstone

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Preservation: adpression

Reposited in the NIGPAS
