Abstract

The Early Cretaceous Jehol Biota from northeastern China has produced an abundance of well preserved birds, mammals and feathered dinosaurs, amongst other fossils. The similarities in the nature of the deposits producing these fossils to the lacustrine facies of the Strzelecki Group of southwest Gippsland, Victoria, Australia suggests that a prolonged, systematic search of those rocks in Australia could yield fossils of similar quality.
