Deoli (Triassic to of India)

Where: West Bengal, India (23.6° N, 86.9° E: paleocoordinates 55.4° S, 60.2° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Panchet Formation, Induan to Induan (252.2 - 247.2 Ma)

• Panchet Formation yields a typical earliest Triassic vertebrate assemblage that can be correlated with the Lystrosaurus Assemblage Zone of South Africa

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: fluvial; conglomeratic sandstone

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
