Also known as Wuting
Where: Yunnan, China (25.5° N, 102.4° E: paleocoordinates 34.3° N, 105.8° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• small collection-level geographic resolution
When: Lufeng Formation, Hettangian to Hettangian (201.3 - 190.8 Ma)
• "Lower Lufeng Series"
•The Lufeng Formation has been divided into lower dark/dull purple beds (= Shawan Member) and upper dark/deep red beds (= Zhangjiawa Member). Luo & Wu (1994: In the Shadow of the Dinosaurs, pp. 251–270) argue on the basis of vertebrate biostratigraphy for a Hettangian–Sinemurian age for the Zhangjiawa Member and a Hettangian age for the Shawan Member. It is not clear which member this collection comes from.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
