West of Pyramid homestead, Ukalunda Beds, Ukalunda District, North Queensland (Devonian to of Australia)

Where: Queensland, Australia (20.0° S, 147.0° E: paleocoordinates 7.7° S, 158.3° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Mt. Wyatt beds Member, Late/Upper Emsian to Late/Upper Emsian (402.5 - 383.7 Ma)

• the statement is made that "as in previous papers on Australian coral faunas by Hill (e.g. 1950), we use the sequence in the south of the Dinant Basin as our standard of reference for the Devonian, so that we subdivide the Middle Devonian into the Couvinian and Givetian stages, rather that Eifelian and Givetian stages"

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; pebbly conglomerate and limestone

• the present collection is from the conglomerate at the base of the drummond group. the corals are found in limestone pebbles in the conglomerate and it is assumed that the pebbles were derived from an older limestone.
