Kamniska Bistrica valley (Strelovec Formation) (Triassic of Slovenia)

Where: Slovenia (46.3° N, 14.6° E: paleocoordinates 4.9° N, 25.0° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Strelovec Formation, Pelsonian (247.2 - 242.0 Ma)

• Conodont analyses were negative. Therefore, the exact age of the Strelovec Formation is unclear. Based on the stratigraphic position above the Lower Anisian carbonates and below the Upper Anisian Contrin Formation, it could be of the Middle Anisian, probably Pelsonian age.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal or restricted shallow subtidal; lithified, carbonaceous lime mudstone

• Dark laminated bituminous limestone

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: Repository: Slovenian Museum of Natural History
