[dinosaur] Fwd: Quaesitosaurus formation



From Kurzanov, S.M., Bannikov, A.F., 1983. A new sauropod from the Upper Cretaceous of Mongolia. Paleontological Journal 1983, 90–96.:

"Therefore the discovery by the Combined Soviet-Mongolian Paleontological Expedition of an almost complete skull of a sauropod, belonging to the new genus Quaesitosaurus, is of particular interest. The skull was discovered in the western part of the Shara-Tsav bluffs, located 8 km to the north of the well-known Upper Cretaceous reptile locality at Bayshin-Tsav [2]. The bluffs consist of mottled marls, clays, siltstones, sandstones, and grits of the Barungoyot Formation. Besides the Quaesitosaurus skull, the locality yielded a skeleton of the ornithomimid Gallimimus sp. and a substantial part of the skeleton of the theropod Avimimus portentosus [1], which also place the deposits in the Barungoyot."

The Quaesitosaurus holotype was found in the Barun Goyot Formation, to be
precise. See Maryanska (2000) for locality and stratigraphic info.
