A consideration about possible Triassic species

As I'm interested in paleontology I was reading this book

In spanish "Life in evolution; Natural History as seen from South America" by Argentine paleontologist Sebastián Apesteguía and researcher Roberto Ares.

Chapter 6, about "Insects and other articulated animals" briefly mentions Pseudopolycentropodidae from the mid Jurassic as one of the first mosquitoes...and that got me thinking: if mosquitoes appeared THEN, it would be the logical thing for earlier dinosaurs to not have high quality, amber fossils. They would take longer to get the full genome of Triassic dinosaurs, but their dig sites would be quite profitable when you take dig yield into account.

About other blood-sucking arthropods: ticks appeared later, during the Cretaceous, and fleas -while having an origin contemporary to mosquitoes- most likely were highly specialized and affected only mammals at first, and birds (dinosaurs) only more recently
 
I have a opinion for DInosaurs that should be added. Some from the game Operation Genesis, others from Dinosaurs I loved.

For carnivores, here is what I think should be added:

#1 = Adasaurus from the Nemegt Formation in Late Cretacious Mongolia. It is a small raptor/dromaeosaurid that is around 1m in height and 2m in length.

#2 = Coelophysis from the Chinle Formation in Mexico as well as areas in North America, Zimbabwe and South Africa. A famous dinosaur from the Triassic period. It is estimated to be nearly 2m in height and 3m in length.

#3 = Coelurus from the Morrison Formation in the USA. Estimated to be around 1m in height and 2m in length, this small Jurassic carnivore would be a good addition.

#4 = Daspletosaurus from the Oldman Formation in the Judith River Group of Alberta. A large tyrannosaurid from the Late Cretaceous estimated to be 3-4m in height and 9m in length. (We do need some tyrnnosaur species in the game to make it more diverse)

#5 = Oviraptor from the Djadokhta Formation in Mongolia. A famous egg eating dinosaur that lived in the same area of Protoceratops and Velociraptor. At a estimated height of 1-1.5m and length of 1.8-2m, it should add as a interesting dinosaur.

#6 = Pheadrolosaurus from the Lianmugin Formation of Tugulu Group, Xinjiang, China. A large dromeasurid that is estimated to be 2-2.5m in height and 4-4.2m in length.

#7 = Syntarsus from Zimbabwe. A small carnivore that shares the same species as the Ceolophysis, standing at 1-1.5m in height and 3m in length.

#8 = Tarbosaurus from the Nemegt Formation in Mongolia. The apex Tyrannosurus of Mongolia. Estimated to be 5-5.5m in height and 10m in length, this was a dangerous animal of Late Cretaceous Asia.

#9 = Utahraptor from the Cedar Mountain Formation in the USA. The largest of the raptors, it was estimated to be nearly 4m in height and 6m in length. A larger raptor than the Velociraptor.

#10 = Xuanhanosaurus from the Dashanpu Formation in China, this predator was a odd predator and is believed it could walk on all four limbs instead of two. With around 2m in height and a 6m in length, this small - medium carnivore roamed the Late Jurassic of China.

#11 = Mapusaurus from the Huincul Formation of Argentina. A large carnivore that was roughly the same size as Giganotosaurus. Known to hunt in packs to bring large dinosaurs like Argentinasaurus down, it was a fearsome predator of the Late Cretaceous South America.

#12 = Gorgosaurus from the Dinosaur Park Formation, the Two Medicine Formation and the Judith River Formation of North America. It was a medium sized tyrannosaurid that was estimated to be 8-9m in length and was believed to live in the same area with Daspletosaurus.

#13 = Albertasaurus from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation in North America. A famous dinosaur from Operation Genesis as well as being a medium sized tyrannasaurid that reached up to 10m in length.

#14 = Megalosaurus from the Taynton Limestone Formation in England. A early Jurassic predator, it was around 9m in length.

#15 = Yangchuanosaurus from the Upper Shaximiao Formation in China, it was the dominant predator of China's Jurassic Period, being similar to that of Allosaurus. It stood at a estimated 10m in length.

#16 = Postosuchus from the Cooper Canyon Formation. The apex predator of the Triassic, it was a quadrupedal predator that was 2m in height and 6m in length.

#17 = Eustreptospondylus from the Oxford Clay Formation, it was a medium sized carnivore that reached 2m in height and 6m in length.

#18 = Australovenator from the Mackunda Formation. A small cousin of the Allosaurus, it roamed Australia and preyed on the Muttaburrasaurus. It stood at 2.5m in height and 6m in length.

#19 = Sarchosuchus from the Kem Kem Beds Formation and the Aoufous Formation of Northern Africa. A large crocodile that preyed on small to medium sized herbivores. Even if its not a dinosaur, it lived in the same era and even ate other dinosaurs. It was estimated to be 11-12m in length.

And now for the herbivores, which are a lot more than the carnivores:

#1 = Lesothosaurus from the Elliot Formation of South Africa and Lesotho. A small herbivore that was 2m in length and one of the earliest dinosaurs from the Triassic and Early Jurassic periods.

#2 = Ledumahadi from the Elliot Formation of South Africa. A large sauropodomorph from the early Jurassic, it was still smaller than Apatasurus and Diplodocus. A recent discovery made in 2018, it is believed to be the beginnings of the massive sauropods we have today like Brachiosaurus and Argentinasaurus. The exact size isn't given, but it is believed to have weighed up to 12 tonnes. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ledumahadi)

#3 = Argentinasaurus from the Huincul Formation in Argentina. Known to be one of the largest dinosaurs, estimated to be 30-35m in length, this huge animal roamed in the Late Cretaceous of Argentina.

#4 = Aepisaurus was a large saurapod that was 6.5m in height and 15m in length. It roamed the regions of France.

#5 = Barapasaurus from the Kota Formation in India. Estimated to be 8m in height and 18m in length.

#6 = Chinshakiangosaurus from the Fengjiahe Formation in China. A large sauropod that roamed the Early Jurassic Period of China, it was estimated to be 12m in height and 19m in length.

#7 = Chubutisaurus from the Cerro Barcino Formation of Argentina. A large sauropod that roamed in the Early Cretaceous of South America. It was a larger sauropod that reached 14m in height and 23m in length.

#8 = Dicraeosaurus from the Tendaguru Formation of Tanzania, Africa. It was a small diplodocoid sauropod that reached 9m in height and 20m in length.

#9 = Shunosaurus from the Xiashaximiao Formation in China. A small sauropod, it had a unique design of having a clubbed tail similar to the ankylosaurs with small spikes similar to that of the stegosaurs. Reaching only 4m in height and 10m in length, it would add a unique variety to the parks and game.

#10 = Saltasaurus from the Lecho Formation of Argentina. A small titanasaurid saurapod, it reached 13m in length and had armoured plates on its back.

#11 = Amargasaurus from the La Amarga Formation of Argentina. A small saurapod that reached 10m in length, it had a unique design of long spines running along its neck, which could have either meant it had a sail similar to Spinosaurus or spikes like that of Kentrosaurus.

#12 = Titanosaurus from the Lameta Formation in India. A small titanosaurid that reached 5-5.2m in height and 12m in length. Like Saltasaurus, it was also armoured on its back.

#13 = Euoplocephalus from the Dinosaur Park Formation of North America. A small anklosaurid, it reached 6m in length. (Also, this is my favourite dinosaur)

#14 = Centrosaurus from the Dinosaur Park Formation of North America. A medium sized ceratopsian dinosaur, it was 3m in height and 6m in length. Its unique design is similar to Styracosaurus, except it did not have the long spikes coming from its frill.

#15 = Hylaeosaurus from the Grinstead Clay Formation in England. A small ankylosaurian dinosaur, it was around 2m in height and 6m in length. It was built the same way as Polocanthus.

#16 = Pachyrhinosaurus from the Wapiti Formation, the Prince Creek Formation, the St. Mary River Formation and the Horseshoe Canyon Formation in North America. Standing at a 3m height and 5-6m in length, it was a unique certopsid that had no horns like Triceratops or Styracosaurus, their skulls bore massive, flattened bosses; a large boss over the nose and a smaller one over the eyes.

#17 = Protoceratops from the Djadochta Formation and the Bayan Mandahu Formation in Mongolia. A small ceratopsid that had no horns, it is most famous with its discovery where it was fighting a Velociraptor at its time of death. While it is a small 0.7m high and 2m long dinosaur, I'm sure that InGen could have adjusted its size to be bigger like they did with the Velociraptor.

#18 = Psittacosaurus from the Qingshan Formation in China, the Jiufotang Formation in China, the Khok Kruat Formationin Thailand, Djadochta Formation and the Bayan Mandahu Formation in Mongolia. A small ceratopsid, it is believed to be bipedal. Standing at 1.6-2m tall and 2-2.2m in length, it would add to the small herbivores.

#19 = Saichania from the Barun Goyot Formation and the Nemegt Formation of Mongolia. It was a small ankylosaur that reached 3m in height and 7m in length.

#20 = Scelidosaurus from the Charmouth Mudstone Formation in England, the Lower Lufeng Formation in China and the Kayenta Formation in North America. It was a small dinosaur that was known as one of the earliest armoured dinosaurs as it was known to live in the Early Jurassic. It was a small 1.5m in height and 4m in length.

#21 = Tuojiangosaurus from the Upper Shaximiao Formation of China. China's version of the Stegosaurus, it was more similar to the Kentrosaurus with its spikes on its shoulders and smaller plates on its back. It stood at 3.5-4m in height and 7m in length.

#22 = Homalocephale from the Nemegt Formation of Mongolia. Another dinosaur from Operation Genesis, this small pachycephalosaurid was unique and had a wider and more flat head than the normal dome head of other pachycephalosaurs. It is estimated to be 1m in height and 3m in length.

#23 = Stegoceras from the Dinosaur Park Formation, the Oldman Formation and the Kirtland Formation in North America. Another pachycepahalosaurid, it was estimated to be 1.5-2m in height and 2-2.5m in length.

#24 = Bactrosaurus from the Iren Dabasu Formation in China. A small hadrosaur, it was 2m in height and 6m in length. It was unique due to the small sail it had on its back.

#25 = Dryosaurus from the Morrison Formation in North America. A small Jurassic herbivore and famous from Operation Genesis, this dinosaur was 1-1.5m in height and 4m in length.

#26 = Hadrosaurs from the Woodbury Formation in USA. A large hadrosaur, it was 3m in height and 10m in length.

#27 = Hypsilophodon from the Wessex Formation and the Vectis Formation in England. A small herbivore from the Early Cretacious, it was known tobe a fast runner to avoid canivores. Standing at 1.5m in height and 2.5m in length.

#28 = Kritosaurus from the Ojo Alamo Formation in North America. A large hadrosaur with the unique humped snout, it stood at 4.5-5m in heightand 9m in length.

#29 = Lambeosaurus from the Dinosaur Park Formation in North America. A large hadrosaur, it had a crest similar to that of Corythosaurus, but it had a additional crest spike jutting from behind its head at 1.5m long. It stood at 6.5-7m in height and 15m in length.

#30 = Ouranosaurus from the Elrhaz Formation of northern Africa. A preferred prey for Charcharodonotsaurus and Spinosaurus, this hadrosaur was unique for having a large sail on its back similar to Spinosaurus. Also from Operation Genesis, it stood at 4m in height and 7m in length.

#31 = Saurolophus from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation in North America and the Nemegt Formation in Asia. A large hadrosaur that stood at 3-4m in height and 10m in length, it hada smaller crest than that of Parasaurolophus.

#32 = Shantungosaurus from the Xingezhuang Formation in China, it was a large hadrosaur that reached 8m in height and 15m in length.

#33 = Tenontosaurus from the Cloverly Formation in North America. A small hadrosaur that stood up to 3m in height and 8m in length.

#34 = Edmontonia from the Horseshoe Canyon Formation. A small nodosaurid dinosaur, it stood at 2m in height and 6.5m in length.

#35 = Damalasaurus from the Ziliujing Formation in China. A large sauropod that stoodat 19-20m in height and 24m in length.

#36 = Minmi from the Bungil Formation in Australia. A small ankylosaur dinosaur without the clubbed tail, it was around 3m in length.

#37 = Supersaurus from the Morrison Formation, it was a large sauropod from the Jurassic at 16-17m in height and 30-35m in length.

#38 = Brontosaurus from the Morrison Formation. As of 2015, Brontosaurus has become its own species and is one of the most famous of the sauropod dinosaurs. It reached a length of 22m.

#39 = Plateosaurus from the Fleming Fjord Formation in Greenland, the Löwenstein Formation and the Trossingen Formation in Germany. The largest dinosaur from the Triassic and the ancestor of the sauropods, Plateosaurus stood at 2.5-3m in height and 7-9m in length.
 
#19 = Sarchosuchus from the Kem Kem Beds Formation and the Aoufous Formation of Northern Africa. A large crocodile that preyed on small to medium sized herbivores. Even if its not a dinosaur, it lived in the same era and even ate other dinosaurs. It was estimated to be 11-12m in length.
Sarcosuchus has to date not been found in Morocco. The Kem Kem beds isn't a formation. It contains both the Ifezouane and Aoufous formations. The largest crocodile found here is Elosuchus (a close relative of Sarcosuchus), which got to at least 8 meters and probably larger.
Sarcosuchus from Niger in the Elrhaz Formation where Suchomimus is also found. These deposits are also older than the Kem Kem beds.
 
It would be a great idea to bring back dinosaurs from Jurassic Park Operation Genesis and add others very interesting. Triassic dinosaurs are missing, and
I would love a DLC of this era.

Chapter 6, about "Insects and other articulated animals" briefly mentions Pseudopolycentropodidae from the mid Jurassic as one of the first mosquitoes...and that got me thinking: if mosquitoes appeared THEN, it would be the logical thing for earlier dinosaurs to not have high quality, amber fossils. They would take longer to get the full genome of Triassic dinosaurs, but their dig sites would be quite profitable when you take dig yield into account.

About other blood-sucking arthropods: ticks appeared later, during the Cretaceous, and fleas -while having an origin contemporary to mosquitoes- most likely were highly specialized and affected only mammals at first, and birds (dinosaurs) only more recently
There is also the fact that the majority of Mesozoic Amber comes from the Cretaceous of the northern hemisphere, primarily due to a boom in Araucariaceae, with the earliest major site for insects in Amber being that of the Earliest Cretaceous of Lebanon (Actually part of the African continent at the time).

There are older ambers, though inclusions are much rarer, because the globules are much smaller, such as from the Triassic of Italy.

Also there are other mites that started more specialised in birds, even Crocodiles can get Ticks today, so it stands to reason that there probably was something ectoparasitic on dinosaurs even in the early days. Though I will admit that Ticks and Mosquitos would be the most likely to preserve in Amber, there are still a few feathers that end up in amber, mostly from the Late Cretaceous though.
 
¿Qué os parecería este pack? Viendo las listas de la gente y siendo lo más realista posible. Serían 4 dinosaurios (no veo a Frontier añadiendo más que esto por pack):

"Most requested dinosaur pack":

Albertosaurus: Formación Cañón de la Herradura. Isla Matanceros. Reputación de Seguridad.

Dryosaurus: Formación Morrison. Isla Muerta. Reputación de Entretenimiento.

Acrocanthosaurus: Formaciones Cloverly y Cedar Mountain. Isla Tacaño. Reputación de Entretenimiento.

Therizinosaurus: Formación Nemegt. Isla Sorna. Reputación de Ciencia.

I see a very varied pack with unique dinosaurs that are missing in the game. A medium sized tyrannosaur, a small herbivore, a single large carnivore and the most spectacular herbivore of all those that are missing.
 
I actually googled these areas and they are classified as formations. The info I got said Sarcosuchus has been found there. Don't forget, this animal lived in the same areas as Spinosaurus and CHarcharodontosaurus.

It didn't. Wikipedia often has little things wrong with it and is often out of date.

Sarcosuchus is found in Niger in the Elrahz formation. Suchomimus is found there as well. Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus aren't found there because these deposits are too old. While both Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus are found in Niger, these are from younger deposits in the Echkar formation.

Sarcosuchus isn't found in Morocco at all. Fossil sellers online often sell Elosuchus fossils as Sarcosuchus because it sells better. The Kem Kem beds/Kem Kem compound assemblage is often incorrectly called a formation. It's made up of the Aoufous and Ifezouane formations. Both of these formations contain vertebrate fossils. Neither contain Sarcosuchus. Similarly, Tegana formation is a name that is also used online for Moroccan fossils. But this name also has no basis in science.

Kem Kem beds isn't a formation and Sarcosuchus didn't live in the same time as Spinosaurus and Carcharodontosaurus.
