UCMP V 5054 - Paria (Triassic to of the United States)

Where: Kane County, Utah (37.2° N, 112.0° W: paleocoordinates 5.9° N, 39.1° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: upper red Member (Moenkopi Formation), Aegean to Aegean (247.2 - 242.0 Ma)

• Upper red member is equivalent to the Holbrook Member of Arizona.

•Lucas & Schoch (2002: Lethaia 35: 97-106) inferred the Holbrook member to be earliest Anisian (Aegean–Bithynian) in age based upon tetrapod biostratigraphy (Eocyclotosaurus used to correlate Holbrook Member to German Upper Bundsandstein) and magnetostratigraphy

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: trace

Collected in 1951; reposited in the UCMP
