'Ein Yabrud quarries (Cretaceous of Palestinian Territory)

Also known as Ein Jabrud

Where: Palestinian Territory (32.0° N, 35.3° E: paleocoordinates 10.7° N, 29.4° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Graysonites wooldridgei - Stoliczkaia amanai ammonoid zone, Bet Meir or Amminadav Formation, Early/Lower Cenomanian (99.6 - 93.5 Ma)

• formation assignment uncertain; PJW: zone misspelled as Graysonites wooldrigei in text. Was Early - Middle Cenomanian, but Yacobucci (2015 - Supplementary Table 1 : Information about this dataset) restricts this to Early Cenomanian.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone

• low energy, shallow marine platform depositional environment, close to shore.
• fine grained, thin-bedded carbonates

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: adpression, soft parts

Collected by Haas

Collection methods: bulk,

• The collection is said to contain several hundred specimens
