Also known as Queensland Museum 1111

Where: Queensland, Australia (25.2° S, 148.5° E: paleocoordinates 58.3° S, 136.9° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Arcadia Formation (Rewan Group), Induan (252.2 - 251.2 Ma)

• Warren et al. (2006) argued that the Arcadia Formation is likely earliest Triassic in age based upon SHRIMP, U/Pb and microflora evidence that the conformably underlying Sagittarius Sandstone of the Rewan Group is largely Permian in age.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Size class: macrofossils
