Where: Lombardia, Italy (45.8° N, 9.8° E: paleocoordinates 27.1° N, 13.8° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Zorzino Limestone Formation, Alaunian (215.6 - 212.0 Ma)

• uppermost Zorzino Limestone (Calcare di Zorzino); uppermost Alaunian on the basis of palynomorphs; most specimens collected from a single 15 cm thick bed 20-30 m below the overlying Argilliti di Riva di Solta
