Examples of "chinlea"
Chinlea is an extinct genus of Triassic mawsoniid coelacanth fish found in the Southwestern United States states of Arizona and New Mexico. The length of "Chinlea" was about 1.5 m (5 feet). It weighed around 68 kg. (150 pounds). Chinlea had lobed fins and a slender tail. The teeth were large and sharp.
Therrien and Fastovsky (2001) examined the paleoenvironment of "Coelophysis" and other early theropods from Petrified Forest National Park in Arizona, and determined that this genus lived during the Late Triassic in an environment that consisted of floodplains marked by distinct dry and wet seasons. There was a great deal of competition during drier times when animals struggled for water in riverbeds that were drying up. The contemporary archosaurs of "Coelophysis" in Chinle Formation were the crurotarsan "Revueltosaurus"; the phytosaurs "Leptosuchus", "Paleorhinus", "Machaeroprosopus", "Redondasaurus" and possibly "Rutiodon"; several aetosaurs, including "Acaenasuchus", "Desmatosuchus", "Paratypothorax", "Stagonolepis", and "Typothorax"; the crocodilomorphs "Hesperosuchus", and "Parrishia"; the rauisuchians "Shuvosaurus", "Effigia", "Poposaurus", "Postosuchus", and "Saurosuchus"; the dinosauriform "Eucoelophysis"; and the dinosaurs "Chindesaurus", "Camposaurus", "Daemonosaurus", and "Gojirasaurus". "Coelophysis" also lived alongside the archosauromorphs "Crosbysaurus", "Tanytrachelos", "Tecovasaurus", "Trilophosaurus", and "Vancleavea"; the other amniotes "Acallosuchus", "Colognathus", "Kraterokheirodon", "Placerias", and "Uatchitodon"; the amphibians "Apachesaurus", and "Koskinonodon"; and the fish "Acrodus", "Lonchidion", "Phoebodus", "Reticulodus", "Xenacanthus", "Chinlea", "Arganodus", "Australosomus", "Lasalichthyes", and "Turseodus".
"Postosuchus" lived in a tropical environment. The moist and warm region consisted of ferns, such as "Cynepteris", "Phelopteris" and "Clathropteris", gymnosperms, represented by "Pelourdea", "Araucarioxylon", "Woodworthia", "Otozamites" and "Dinophyton", and cycads like "Sanmiguelia". Plants of the Dockum Group are not well known since the oxidizing of the environment has destroyed most of the plant fossils. However, some of them may provide information about the climate in Dockum Group during the late Triassic period. For example, the discovery of large specimens belonging to "Araucarioxylon" determine that the region was well watered. The fauna found in Dockum Group confirm that there were lakes and/or rivers containing fish such as the cartilaginous "Xenacanthus", the lobe-finned "Chinlea" and the dipnoan "Ceratodus". On the shores of these rivers lived labyrinthodonts ("Latiscopus") and reptiles such as "Malerisaurus" and "Trilophosaurus". Also living on the margins of the lakes were the archosaurs "Leptosuchus", "Nicrosaurus" and "Rutiodon". "Postosuchus" lived in the uplands along with "Coelophysis" and other archosaurs such as "Desmatosuchus" and "Typothorax". "Postosuchus" was one of the largest animals in that ecosystem and preyed on herbivores such as "Trilophosaurus" and "Typothorax".
