In other words, it is an assemblage of fossils or a community of specific time, which is different from "death assemblages" (thanatocoenoses).
Genus of dinosaur whose fossils were discovered by Godefroit, Zan & Jin in 2000 on the south bank of the Amur River, dividing China from Russia.

Age span of objects that are contained within a stratum.
Even in such cases there will still be some death assemblage around that has been generated beforehand.
Jurassic (lower Toarcian) geologic formation that extends across the Baltic coast, from Grimmen, Germany, to Lithuania, with its major sequence in Poland and a few boreholes in Kaliningrad.
The Ciechocinek Formation was, in the late Toarcian a depositional area located north-eastern margin of the North German Basin, where the Sorthat Formation (Bornholm high, Fennoscandinavian coast) and the northern part of the island of Rügen (Ringkøbing-Fyn High), both to the north, provided the terrestrial elements of the Ciechocinek Formation taphocoenosis.
