Levigatella uralica-Atrypoidea uralica Community, Late Pridolian, N. Urals (Silurian of Russian Federation)

Also known as Reef 3735

Where: Russian Federation (60.0° N, 60.0° E: paleocoordinates 3.8° N, 8.7° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Petropavlovsk Formation, Pridoli (423.0 - 419.2 Ma)

• Late Priodli

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; gray limestone

• "No signs of transportation, with over 80% of the shells articualted. BA 3, quiet water community. Smooth shells with thin valves suggest soft bottom, interreef area below wave base. "
• "Occurs in massive, light gray and yellowish pink, reef limestones in the lower part of the Petropavlovsk Formation."
