Where: Russian Federation (59.2° N, 60.5° E: paleocoordinates 2.8° S, 10.5° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Wenlock (433.4 - 427.4 Ma)

Environment/lithology: marine; black, gray, argillaceous limestone and calcareous shale

• "Characteristic are the absence of sorting and the prevalence of articulated specimens occurring chiefly in life position. Clearly a level bottom, soft ground, relatively quiet water environment. BA 2."
