Basis of coordinate:based on nearby landmark
Geographic resolution:small collection
Period: Jurassic Epoch: Early Jurassic

Key time interval: Sinemurian
Age range of interval: 199.5 - 192.9 m.y. ago
Formation:Lufeng Member:Zhangjia'ao
Stratigraphic resolution:bed
Stratigraphy comments: 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 probable Sinemurian age for the Zhangjiawa Member and a Hettangian age for the Shawan Member.
