The Triassic–Jurassic (Tr-J) extinction event, sometimes called the end-Triassic extinction, marks the boundary between the Triassic and Jurassic periods, and is one of the major extinction events of the Phanerozoic eon, profoundly affecting life on land and in the oceans. In the seas, a whole class and 23–34% of marine genera disappeared. On land, all archosauromorphs other than.

    In the backcountry wilds of Nevada occur two truly classic Early Triassic ammonoid localities. Both sites yield innumerable beautifully preserved ammonoids--an extinct order of cephalopod--in what geologists, stratigraphers and fossil cephalopod researchers all call the Lower Triassic Thaynes Formation, roughly million years old, deposited near the beginning of the Mesozoic Era only three.

The closest marine strata of Middle Triassic age (Middle Anisian) are in central Nevada, over miles further to the S-SW of the Hammond Creek locality. Specimens PIMUZ (coprolite) and PIMUZ A/I (Birgeria sp.) are stored and curated at the Paläontologisches Institut und Museum, Universität Zürich, Karl Schmid-Strasse 4, CH Cited by: Ichthyosaurs proper, to the contrary, have a fore limb that is fully adapted to its function as a flipper.

However, the adaptations are very variable. Triassic species typically have a very derived humerus, changed into a disc. Jurassic species tend to have a more elongated humeral form with a rounded head, narrow shaft, and expanded lower : †Eoichthyosauria.

Primitive therapsids are present as fossils in certain Middle Permian deposits; later forms are known from every continent except Australia but are commonest in the Late Permian and Early Triassic of South Africa.

The limbs and limb girdles were modified for four-footed locomotion. The skull, as in mammals, had a single opening in the temporal. Shonisaurus is a genus of least 37 incomplete fossil specimens of the marine reptile have been found in the Luning Formation of Nevada, formation dates to the late Carnian age of the late Triassic period, about million years : †Shonisauridae.

Abstract. A new species of Cymbospondylus from the Favret Formation in the Augusta Mountains, Nevada, is described based on one specimen (FMNH PR), of which large parts of the skull as well as postcranial material are preserved in three dimensions. A number of species have been ascribed to the genus Cymbospondylus since its first description, but so far only two species are well Cited by:.
