Where: Bulgaria (43.1° N, 23.7° E: paleocoordinates 30.2° N, 21.3° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Trochoceramus radiosus inoceramid zone, Darmantsi Formation, Early/Lower Maastrichtian (70.6 - 66.0 Ma)
• Darmantsi Formation, includes ammonites of Pachydiscus cf. colligatus (Binkhorst) and P. neubergicus, and which is dominated by the inoceramid genera Cataceramus, Platyceramus and Trochoceramus. The inoceramids yielded a suite of characteristic species that are indicative for the lower Maastrichtian Trochoceramus radiosus inoceramid Zone.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; siliciclastic sediments
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: Repository: Museum of Palaeontology and Historical Geology at Sofia University "St. Kliment Ohridski"
