Where: Spain (42.0° N, 1.0° E: paleocoordinates 31.2° N, 11.3° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: la Pedrera de Rubies Formation, Early/Lower Barremian (130.0 - 125.5 Ma)

Environment/lithology: lacustrine - large; lime mudstone

• The carbonate mud which forms the lithographic limestones of the Sierra del Montsec (particle size of about 3 m) was deposited in the deepest parts, in shallow water, deposition of charophytic limestones took place
• lithographic limestones intercalated within freshwater charophytic limestone

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Preservation: mold/impression
