Kårgärde 7.80 - 8.20 m (Ordovician of Sweden)

Where: Dalarna, Sweden (63.0° N, 14.5° E: paleocoordinates 31.0° S, 7.9° W)

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Eoplacognathus foliaceus conodont zone, Seby Limestone Formation, Lasnamagi (463.5 - 460.9 Ma)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: fine-grained, nodular limestone

• Thick and thin bedded limestone with finely nodular limestone with Stromatolite- like laminations. Medium- to thick-bedded (thickness of the individual beds in ascending

•order 10, 16, 6, 4, and 4 cm), fine-grained, variegated reddish-brown and greyish_ green limestone. In the lower 20 cm the dominant colour is reddish-brown, in the middle 10 cm grey, and in the upper 10 cm reddish-brown. The lower and especially the middle part contain dark chamositic grains, the middle part also small reddish-brown pebbles of limestone.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
