The Triassic

 

The main sediment in the UK that is of Triassic age is the Bunter Sandstone and Keuper Marls.  This does not preserve fossils very well.  Another more favourable sediment are the Rhaetic beds.  These are at the top of the Triassic sequence and have preserved pterosaur remains of late Triassic age.

Remains for this sediment are rare and fragmentary.
