Cameron tracksite, MNA 800-1 (Triassic to of the United States)

Also known as Ward Terrace

Where: Coconino County, Arizona (35.9° N, 111.1° W: paleocoordinates 14.9° N, 50.4° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Wingate Sandstone Formation (Glen Canyon Group), Rhaetian to Rhaetian (208.5 - 199.3 Ma)

• lower part of formation, a few meters above base

•Wingate traditionally identified as Early Jurassic in age; however, Lucas et al. (2011: Palaeo3 302: 194-205) have argued that the lower part of the Wingate is latest Triassic in age. Because the position of the boundary relative to this locality is unclear, it is assigned a Rhaetian–Hettangian age.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: eolian; sandstone

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: trace

Collection methods: surface (in situ),
