Where: Russian Federation (57.0° N, 67.0° E: paleocoordinates 13.5° S, 57.6° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Wenlock (433.4 - 427.4 Ma)

Environment/lithology: marine; shelly/skeletal, gray limestone

• In life assemblage, shells unsorted, with [subequal numbers of articulated and disarticulated shells]. Rough water, steep slope unit, in BA 3 position. Most brachiopods attached by pedicle.
• "Occurs chiefly in massive, gray and light gray, organogenic, commonly brecciated limestone."
