Villaggio del Pescatore (Cretaceous to of Italy)

Also known as Duino

Where: Friulia-Venezia Giulia, Italy (45.8° N, 13.6° E: paleocoordinates 32.2° N, 14.7° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Liburnian Formation, Late/Upper Campanian to Late/Upper Campanian (83.5 - 66.0 Ma)

• "The occurrence ofthe foraminifer Murciella cuvillieri immediately below the bone-bearing lens, its range, and the stratigraphic framework of the Karst Plateau, suggest a late Campanian–early Maastrichtian age for Tethyshadros. The presence of the alligatoroid Acynodon further supports this age."

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal or restricted shallow subtidal; black limestone

• "a narrow anoxic trough , markedly sloping, facing southward, and open inside a supratidal environment of the carbonate platform influenced by fresh water and marine influx"
• 10 m, 70 metres long thick lens of black, laminated limestones or carbonates

Size class: macrofossils

Collected in 1990

Collection methods: quarrying, chemical, mechanical, acetic,
