[F] Kota Formation - Andhra Pradesh State - India
Andhra Pradesh State - India
An Early Jurassic age for the Kota Formation has been established on the basis of an associated and fairly diverse vertebrate essamblage that includes pholidophorid teleosteans, coalacanthid crossopterygians, the cetiosaurid, a campylognathoid pterosaur, a teleosaurid crocodylian, and kuhneotheriid and amphidontif symmetrodonts, (Dasgupta, 1993).
The Kota Formation consists of fluvial sediments with a prominent highly fossiliferous limestone band representing a playa-type condition (Maulik and Rudra, 1986). The limestone shows desiccation cracks and was probably laid down in a moderately hot climate under mainly sediment-depauperate conditions.
