Where: San Juan, Argentina (30.0° S, 68.0° W: paleocoordinates 46.6° S, 33.5° W)

• coordinate based on political unit

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Scaphonyx-Exaeretodon-Herrerasaurus other zone, Cancha de Bochas Member (Ischigualasto Formation), Carnian (237.0 - 228.0 Ma)

(2011: Science 331: 206) which reportedly represents "a narrow temporal interval from 231.5 to 229 Ma in the latter half of the Carnian stage".

•5 specimens from "about" the same horizon (Cox 1965).

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported

Size class: macrofossils
