Re: China cracking down: Canadian gets 7 years for smuggling dinosaur fossils



They included Jurassic hyphalosaurus fossils over 150 million years old

They are sold (in stupendous amounts!!!) as "Jurassic" and "150 Ma old" all over the Internet. But they are from the Yixian and/or Jiufotang Fms, thus at most Barremian in age (radiometric date from the Yixian Fm: 125 Ma ago = Barremian-Aptian boundary; the Jiufotang Fm is above the Yixian Fm).
