Sebeş Glod B, (SbG/B) (Cretaceous of Romania)

Also known as Sebes Glod, Lancram, Langendorf

Where: Alba, Romania (46.0° N, 23.6° E: paleocoordinates 38.4° N, 20.2° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Sebes Formation, Early/Lower Maastrichtian (70.6 - 66.0 Ma)

• mid-lower section of the Sebes Formation

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: "floodplain"; paleosol/pedogenic, nodular, red, silty, calcareous claystone and sandstone

• "Fossiliferous layers are grouped into a 2.2 m thick dark-red calcareous silty claystone sequence that has thinly-laminated and lenticular sandy interbeddings (crevasses), related to periodic flooding events, and several pedogenic calcitic horizons (Bk) that are marked by sparse and occasionally grouped calcareous nodules. Bone fragments and chips are widespread throughout the whole overbank sequence: however, more complete elements of closely associated and/or articulated skeletal parts are to be found immediately above the sandy crevasses, covered by fine sediments. The top of the overbank facies is represented by massive dark-red mudstone. showing abundant tubular burrowings and rhysolites, marking the incipient topsoil horizon.
