A few kilometers southwest of Nayband (Triassic of Iran)

Where: Iran (32.4° N, 57.5° E: paleocoordinates 12.9° S, 43.8° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Nayband Formation, Sevatian (212.0 - 205.6 Ma)

• M. haueri indicates the uppermost Norian, i.e. the upper Suessi Zone. This is based on its occurence mainly above M. salinaria (and M. subcircularis Gabb) in the Mediterranean as well as in southern Alaska (Westermann 1973).

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by Ab-e-Khak company geologists; reposited in the BSP
