Late Triassic - Early Jurassic tectonism was followed by large scale marine regression of the ancient South and Southwest China sea. During the Jurassic, Tethys reached Tibet, western Yunnan, southern Qinghai and southwestern Xinjiang, while the Pacific Ocean transgressed only briefly into the areas of Guangdong, southern Hunan, southern Fujian and eastern Heilongjiang. Most of China remained continental with some large lakes and intermontane basins (Wang & Sun 1983). Freshwater, terrestrial and marine fossils are known.
