• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Julian (235.0 - 232.0 Ma)

• No stratigraphic details, but genus occurs in Upper Triassic (Carnian-Norian) elsewhere. Bittner compares species to forms from St. Cassian Formation, so a Julian age is assigned.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: replaced with silica
