Atrypoidea camelina scheii Community, Early Pridolian, Urals (Silurian of Russian Federation)

Where: Russian Federation (61.0° N, 60.0° E: paleocoordinates 4.1° N, 7.7° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Pridoli (423.0 - 419.2 Ma)

Environment/lithology: marine; gray, argillaceous limestone

• "...chiefly as articulated specimenas. Quiet water, BA 2, soft bottom unity. The interlayered occurrence in the N. Urals of good Atrypoidea and Gracianella communities is an important bit of evidence that the two overlap somewhere near the BA 2-3 boundary."
• "Occurs in dark gray, argillaceous limestone..."
