Loc. 4.3, Lodenice-Bubovice roadcut, (beds containing Coolinia pecten) (Silurian of Czech Republic)

Where: Czech Republic (50.0° N, 17.8° E: paleocoordinates 52.6° S, 62.0° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Motol Formation, Homerian (430.5 - 427.4 Ma)

• Stage and zone not given. Inference of Homerian stage based on statement that this is stratigraphically above previous level (C.perneri/C.ramosus) and no faulting is mentioned (but faulting is explicitly mentioned elsewhere in description of this section in cases where older strata overlie younger strata).

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; volcaniclastic shale and volcaniclastic, shelly/skeletal, gray, green limestone

• "...exposed sequence continues...as brown tuffitic shales with lenticular layers of pink tuffitic bioclastic limestones, interrupted by a 1 m thick black basalt sill. Sediments contain [brachiopods]. From the same level but above the present roadcut a large lens of grey-greenish tuffitic limestones was quarried during Barrande's time and yielded common [list]."
