City View Church (Cambrian to of the United States)

Where: York County, Pennsylvania (40.0° N, 76.8° W: paleocoordinates 79.0° S, 94.6° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Emigsville Member (Kinzers Formation), Dyeran to Dyeran (516.0 - 505.0 Ma)

• Emigsville Member of the Kinzers Formation. "The Kinzers Formation extends from the middle Dyeran Stage to somewhere within the Delamaran Stage of the Laurentian zonation scheme for the Cambrian. The olenelloid trilobites Wanneria walcottana and Olenellus roddyi recovered from the City View Church site are consistent with this age assignment (Webster personal communication 26 March, 2019). This falls within Stage 4 of the Cambrian in the global chronostratigraphic scale,approximately 510 Ma"

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: offshore; lithified, brown shale

• laminated brown shale

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: mold/impression
