Smokejacks Brickworks (Cretaceous of the United Kingdom)

Also known as Baryonyx type, Ockley, Smokejack's

Where: England, United Kingdom (51.1° N, 0.3° W: paleocoordinates 41.4° N, 10.2° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Cypridea clavata small shelly zone, Upper Member (Weald Clay Formation), Early/Lower Barremian (130.0 - 125.5 Ma)

• about 7 m below the base of BGS Bed 5c, Cypridea clavata zone; Hughes's MCT phase 2 (1994)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: pond; lithified, bioturbated, fine-grained, concretionary, gray, green, sandy claystone and lithified, sideritic siltstone

• "quiet, low-energy nature of...environment"; "non-marine origin." "fluvial and/or mudplain environment with areas of shallow water, lagoons and marsh"; "A temporary, shallow body of water on a marshy floodplain."
• "most were encased in nodules of sideritic siltstone...but some lay unprotected in soft clay." "fine silty clay...light olive-grey in colour and containing large irregular nodules of bioturbated sideritic siltstone."

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Preservation: mold/impression, trace
