Capaccio Vecchio, CO assemblage (Cretaceous to of Italy)

Where: Italy (40.4° N, 15.1° E: paleocoordinates 24.7° N, 13.5° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Late/Upper Turonian to Late/Upper Turonian (93.5 - 86.3 Ma)

• Post Cenomanian.

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; lithified framestone

• Rudists, concentrated in decimetre-thick layers, characterize the post-Cenomanian, nearly 350 m, thick, carbonate succession. Radiolitids and subordonate requienids occur as solitary specimens and/or in bouquets, often toppled.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
