Stratigraphy “Néocomien-Urgonien” of Ooster (1865: p. 58). The Veveyse outcrop encompasses sediments from uppermost Berriasian to basal Barremian (Busnardo et al., 2003). Sediments similar to the matrix adhering to the types are present at numerous levels in that section and the exact stratigraphic provenance of the types thus remains unknown. [details]
