Fossil range/doc
Carboniferous–Early Cretaceous
शास्त्रीय वर्गीकरण

Illustrates the fossil range of a taxon. Intended for use in {{taxobox}}es.

You can give a numeric range, or specify the periods involved. The range will be quoted in text before the timeline, unless you specify a third parameter - leaving it blank will result in no text being provided.

You can also specify "earliest" and "latest" to add a "ghost" bar beyond the accepted fossil range. You can use these parameters for whatever you like; they may be useful in the case of living fossils such as the coelocanth, where you may wish to specify latest=0 to make the bar faintly extend to the present; they bay also be useful where "earliest" fossils are not universally accepted - for instance, the octocorals only have a good fossil record from the Tertiary, but there are claims of Cambrian representatives. In this case, you may wish to specify earliest=middle Cambrian.

If you receive an error when specifying a period name, check you've spelt it right; if so, it probably isn't yet incorporated into the templates {{next period}} and {{period start}}. This is really easy to do, so feel free to add the period yourself to make future editors' lives easier!
