Where: Bayern, Germany (49.8° N, 10.5° E: paleocoordinates 26.4° N, 13.5° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• small collection-level geographic resolution
When: Blasensandstein Member (Hassberge Formation), Carnian (235.0 - 221.5 Ma)
• Bed 7 within the Ebrach quarry (see Kuhn 1936:93), with 30-40 cm thickness; Blasensandstein locally overlies the Lehrbergschichten and underlies the Coburger Sandstein and is laterally equivalent to the Kieselsandstein of Baden-Württemberg which is now the lower Hassberge Formation, Middle Keuper Subgroup, and is considered late Carnian in age (see Deutsche Stratigraphische Kommission 2005: Cour. Forsch.-Inst. Senckenberg 253:1-296).
•Hunt & Lucas (1991) referred this locality to their "Paleorhinus biochron" and it was subsequently incorporated into the Otischalkian LVF.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: lacustrine; sandstone
Size class: macrofossils
