    The 250 MYA will technically be Triassic, 200 and 150 will be Jurassic, and 100 will be Cretaceous.

    Should I also do the K/T boundary as well?

    There must also be a Miocene - 15 or 10 mya.

    Carboniferous period now colored in. The movements of the continents should make more sense once I fill the gaps more.

    Colors still correlate with the colors here:

    Small info dump write-up I made on the continents some time ago, putting it here just in case someone is interested. Dates and names subject to change.

    Not counting underwater shelves, going clockwise from the top left:

    Serratar
    Rhodin
    Talamor
    Equatoria
    Ozara
    Capricornia

    The Sund Archipelago are sometimes considered their own continent, or part of Serratar.

    Talamor and Ozara are fused. Serratar and Rhodin are almost fused. Talamor may also be fused with Serica, and if it is, would count as a supercontinent, named Serratalamozara. (Serica Hatar Talamor Ozara)

    Serratar is comprised of several smaller continents and subcontinents., listed here clockwise from top left:

    Sibirica
    Hatar
    Central Serratar
    Avarda
    Southeast Serica
    Southwest Serica
    Greater Serica

    Talamor is comprised of three smaller regions, going clockwise starting in the top left;

    Aquilonia
    Talamor Proper (Old Talamor)
    Mexas (word coined by Turquoise Blue)
    Southern Valley
    South New Talamor
    North New Talamor

    Ozara has one major island, Malag.

    Talamor has a large archipelago in the Arctic Circle.

    Equatoria has one major island, Natecuya.

    Serratar has several major islands, including
    Unia Islands
    Aq Taqmaq
    Thule
    Yseia
    Tapron

    The Sund may be considered part of Serratar

    Supercontinents

    Rodinia 1.1 gya - 750 mya
    Pannotia 660 mya - 550 mya
    Pangea 300 mya - 180 mya
    Serratarhodin-Talazara 50 mya - present

    Other continents

    Archeobora/Protoborea/Borea 580 mya - 55 mya
    Consisted of Talamor, Sibirica, Hatar, Serica (Borea only) and Equatoria (Borea only).

    Archeomedia 550 mya - 180 mya
    Consisted of Equatoria, Sund, Serica, western Capricornia, southern Serica, and southeasternmost Talamor.

    Protoeurusia/Eurusia 550 mya - 170 mya
    Consisted of eastern Capricornia, Avarda, central Serratar, Rhodin, New Talamor, Aquilonia, Ozara and Malag

    Notia (Rhozaraland) 170 mya - 110 mya
    Consisted of Rhodin and Ozara

    Greater Capricornia 170 mya - 90 mya
    Consisted of Capricornia and Avarda

    Have you considered naming other landforms, like deserts, mountains, rivers, rainforests, etc?

    Here's the names map for @Uralicker, i'm not sure if the link will work because I'm not used to using imgur.

    https://imgur.com/a/IaHsH

    EDIT: alternate link https://i.imgur.com/8aEyjZP.png

    In other news, I fixed the mid-ocean ridge on the edges of the map, at the cost of sacrificing the map outline :p Turns out the Robinson projection Gprojector makes isn't exactly the same size as regular worldA maps. I'm also gonna start on the rivers soon. phys_newtellurus.png

    This is the very first version of this map that I posted here on November 28 of 2015 in the map thread. It's kinda crazy to see how much progress I've made on it, and it still isn't done XD. original tellurus.png

    Why did not you want to make the equivalent of Antarctica?

    Probably because there are better places in the solar system to have subglacial lakes.

    Dude I love this, if you ever want some linguistic help lemme know. If it's appropriate for me to offer. I do a lot of fantasy language work.

    I prefer it without land at the poles.
