Tiefengraben (Arthaber section) (Triassic to of Austria)

Where: Austria (47.7° N, 14.7° E: paleocoordinates 5.9° N, 25.9° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Gutenstein Formation, Pelsonian to Pelsonian (247.2 - 242.0 Ma)

• The classic Arthaber fauna from the Groß-Reifling area came from the upper part of the Gutenstein Formation (Assereto, 1971). Mostly Pelsonian, but according to Monnet et al. (2008), Arthaber’s collection includes several distinct ammonoid faunas among which the zoldianus and cimeganus zones can be recognized.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: Repository: Geologischen Bundesanstalt Wien
