I removed "Ichthyosaurs" from the "Fauna" section below the main article because paleontologists agree that ichthyosaurs didn't appear until around 230 million years ago, 15 million years after the Olenekian. This is corroborated by Wiki's entry on ichthyosaurs: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ichthyosaur

“Ichthyosaurs thrived during much of the Mesozoic era; based on fossil evidence, they first appeared approximately 230 million years ago (Mya) [during the Laninian] and disappearing ….”

I also changed "disappearing" to "disappeard" in the ichthyosaur article for parallel verb structure purposes.
