When: Gutenstein Formation, Pelsonian to Pelsonian (247.2 - 242.0 Ma)

• The classic Arthaber fauna from the Groß-Reifling area came from the upper part of the Gutenstein Formation (Assereto, 1971). Mostly Pelsonian, but according to Monnet et al. (2008), Arthaber’s collection includes several distinct ammonoid faunas among which the zoldianus and cimeganus zones can be recognized.
