Abstract

The fossils occur in marine and (less frequently) in freshwater deposits, and they provide evidence of the beginning of the opening of the Mozambique Channel between Malagasy and Africa, in Eotriassic times. The occurrence of the genus in Gondwana and in northern continents indicates that the Tethys and Arctic oceans were connected.
