[F] Maleri Formation - Andhra Pradesh State - India
Andhra Pradesh State - India
The Late Triassic age of the Maleri Formation at Nennal Andrah Pradesh, India, which contains at least four generically similar taxa to the Dockum fauna of Texas, has been established on the basis of associated vertebrates, including metoposaurid and chigutisaurid temnospondylus, rhynchosaurid and phytosaurid reptiles, and traversodontid cynodonts (Dasgupta, 1993).
Dinosaurs have also been discovered in the overlying Dharmaran Formation (Kutty, 1969; Jain and Roychowdhury, 1987). The Maleri Fm. consists of red clays, fine to medium sandstones, and peloidal calcarenites (Dasgupta, 1993). The landscape appears to be seasonally well watered with a preponderance of water bodies in which unionids and a variety of fishes and semiaquatic tetrapods lived (Jain, 1980).
