• "The bones of Steneosaurus sp. were collected in the "Carrière de Grande Roche" in the South [sic? should be north based on the map] of the village comes from the same limestone deposits as the flora of Etrochey, above limestones of Etrochey themselves with Burmirhynchia and oncoides often strongly dolomitized and rust-stained."
•"They are two meters white bioclastic and oolitic limestones with
•micritic cement, which show an oblique plane of stratification: the bones
•and other fossils are in the same massive bench and dissociated; the
•branches of plants are plated on the surface of the benches."
