Middle Triassic Ammonoid Fossils From Nevada. Visit a world-famous fossil locality in the Great Basin Desert of Nevada, a specific place that yields some 41 species of ammonoids, in addition to five species of pelecypods and four varieties of belemnites from a geologic section of the middle Triassic Prida Formation; many paleontologists consider this specific site the single best middle.

A reexamination of the type specimen of Himalayasaurus tibetewis reveals that the bone previously identified as a coracoid is more likely a radius. This bone clearly shows a synapomorphy of the Shastasaurinae, which confirms a shastasaurid affinity previously proposed for the species.

Extract The marine Triassic rocks of Nevada are well known for their ichthyosaur finds, and a number of new genera and species were described from this state.

Triassic Ichthyosauria, with special reference to the American forms. Memoirs of the University of California Early Triassic seas invaded the northeastern Great Basin from Idaho and transgressed Nevada from east to west.

Marine connections with the eugeosynclinal part were probably through California into southern Nevada. As the rate of subsidence varied in the miogeosyncline, marine tongues extended over the more stable craton toward the east.

Triassic Ichthyosauria, with special reference to the. 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 Middle Jurassic marine conglomeratic deposits in the northern Sierra Nevada form one of three post–Late Triassic stratigraphic elements shared by the northern Sierra terrane and rocks of probable cratonal affinity in west-central Nevada.

Upper Triassic limestone in the northern Sierra Nevada is linked faunally to correlative limestone of. In Merriam’s publication on the Triassic Ichthyopterygia from California and Nevada he reported that in the summer ofhe traveled up to Shasta County accompanied by Smith and a group of students from both Stanford and Berkeley.

There is no record of who those students were. Quartz-Tourmaline Veins in the Northern Sierra Nevada Area Summer Tourmaline-bearing quartz veins and replacement deposits, commonly copper- and gold-bearing, are found in unusual concentration in northwestern Nevada and adjacent northeastern California in Triassic and Jurassic arc rocks and in the Cretaceous plutons that intrude them.

Ichthyosaurs are an extinct order of marine reptiles from the Mesozoic era. By the Upper Triassic they are similar in shape to dolphins and to fast predatory fish like tuna (convergent evolution).They are found in marine strata from the earliest Triassic to the Cretaceous, though the early proto-ichthyosaurs are sometimes put in the broader category of Ichthyopterygia.

It was one of the largest ichthyosaurs, and fossils range from 6 m (18 ft) up to 10 m (30 ft) long. It was one of the least fish-like of the ichthyosaurs, lacking a dorsal fin and fluked tail.

It did, however, have an elongated snout like other ichthyosaurs. Contents[show.
