Khaneh-Khorh (Triassic of Iran)

Where: Iran (30.9° N, 53.2° E: paleocoordinates 3.5° N, 41.0° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Nayband Formation, Rhaetian (208.5 - 201.3 Ma)

• Norian to Rhaetian age stated in text; according to Marcoux 1993 Nayband formation of Late Norian age. Conodonts and ammonoids below sponge-bearing beds are Norian. Kristan-Tollmann et al. (1979) considered the Oxycolpella beds (equivalent to the sponge beds) to be Rhaetian, followed by Schafer et al. (2003).

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified reef rocks

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: peel or thin section
