These fossils were found in light grey and dark grey of shale of Rhythmic Membert of the Semanggol Formation, Baling, Kedah. This rock unit is well exposes in Northern Perak and Northern Kedah state. Base on the ammonoids association, a part of Semanggol Formation is assigned to be late Ladinian of Middle Triassic in age and correlatable with Frankites Regoladus Zone.

"TAXONOMY IS OFTEN UNDERVALUE AS A GLORIFIED FORM OF FILLING WITH EACH SPECIES IN ITS FOLDER, LIKE A STAMP IN ITS PRESCRIBED PLACE IN AN ALBUM; BUT TAXONOMY IS A FUNDAMENTAL AND DYNAMIC SCIENCE, DEDICATED TO EXPLORING THE CAUSES OF RELATIONSHIPS AND SIMILARITIES AMONG ORGANISMS." - S.J. GOULD 1990.
