Lipie Slaskie clay-pit, Lisowice (Triassic to of Poland)

Where: Slaskie, Poland (50.7° N, 18.6° E: paleocoordinates 37.4° N, 16.1° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Norian to Norian (221.5 - 201.6 Ma)

• "The strata exposed in the Lipie Śląskie clay-pit are correlatable with the upper part of the subsurface Zbąszynek Beds and lower part of the Wielichowo Beds (Late Triassic: latest Norian-early Rhaetian). These formations apparently continue into the Exter Formation of the Upper Keuper in the east German part of the Germanic Basin" (Niedzwiedzki et al. 2011)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lenticular, concretionary, pyritic, gray, green, muddy, calcareous claystone

• "a lenticular body of grey mudstone and claystone...[bones are] mostly covered with calcareous and pyritic crust or preserved within limestone concretions." Described later as "greenish-grey."

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Collection methods: salvage, quarrying, surface (float), mechanical,
