The area where this happened is called Aptian

Gili said the new species was found in several parts of the Iberian Peninsula - in the Maestrat basin, the Vasco-Cantabrica basin, to the south of the Lusitania basin and in the Cordillera Prebetica mountain range, 'where it accumulated in dense conglomerations along the banks of the carbonate marine platforms of the Lower Aptian
period (114 million years ago)'.
the Brazilian oil and gas company conducting the largest private sector exploratory campaign in Brazil, announced the find after the latest drilling operations in the Aptian
