Serrat Pedregós (Cretaceous to of Spain)

Also known as Cellers-2

Where: Cataluña, Spain (42.1° N, 0.9° E: paleocoordinates 32.5° N, 2.3° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Arén Formation, Late/Upper Campanian to Late/Upper Campanian (83.5 - 66.0 Ma)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal; sandstone and limestone

• The new egg site is situated over a fine- grained, yellowish sandstone of the Aren Formation, just below a white limestone layer, in a similar strati- graphic position as the one described for the previous site. Above the egg-bearing layer, the overlying lime-

•stone is again sharply divided by a new sandstone wedge, which pinches out eastwards. The upper white limestone is overlaid by the same rudist Hippuritella castroi horizon (Fig. 2). Therefore, the two egg sites can be laterally correlated at the top of the sandstone wedge of the Aren Formation. This wedge is just one of the several wedges of the westward prograding Aren Forma- tion, successively intercalated with lagoonal limestones of the Tremp Formation.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
