Also known as Khermin Tsav; Khermin-Tsab; Hermiin Tsav, Soviet-Mongolian Paleontological Expedition

Where: Omnogov, Mongolia (43.3° N, 99.6° E: paleocoordinates 40.3° N, 89.3° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Barun Goyot Formation, Campanian (84.9 - 70.6 Ma)

• Red Beds of Khermin Tsav

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by V. Reshetov, R. Barsbold in 1972

Collection methods: surface (in situ),

• A broad collection that might include the collection #1157, but necessary because of nomenclatural variation from authors to authors, and also because the stratigraphic position of Gobiates khermeentsavi in the locality section is unknown. Distinct from PMPE and other collections from the same general site.
