Where: British Columbia, Canada (53.9° N, 133.2° W: paleocoordinates 0.8° S, 128.3° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: sunrisensis ammonoid zone, Sandilands Formation, Liasicus (201.3 - 196.5 Ma)

• Ammonites collected from strata immediately underlying the collection include Ectocentrites pacificus Longridge et al. 2008 (C-156925; TD-88-6-6), while strata immediately overlying contain the ammonite Pseudaetomoceras cf. P. doetzkirchneri (G├╝mbel 1861) (C-156927; TD-88-6-8). According to Longridge et al. (2008), all these strata are assigned to the Sunrisensis Zone, of Early Jurassic (late middle Hettangian) age.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: submarine fan; lithified siltstone

• Interbedded siltstone and sandstone (from Longridge et al. 2008)
