The stratigraphic age for these continental dinosaur-bearing localities has traditionally been provided by stratigraphic correlation with marine series (Ardevol et al., 2000) and magnetostratigraphy (Galbrun et al., 1993), together with the use of various biostratigraphic markers (charophytes, palynomorphs, rudists; Feist and Colombo, 1983; Medus et al., 1992; Riveline et al., 1996; Vicens et al., 2004).
However, the position of the Evangeline Member assemblage in the lower part of the basin section, well below strata dated as Norian based on magnetostratigraphy (see below), and below the position of the boundary between TS II and TS III, suggests a Carnian age.
