Also known as Silent Mountains

Where: Kazan, Russian Federation (55.9° N, 53.3° E: paleocoordinates 29.1° N, 44.7° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Baitugan Formation, Roadian (272.3 - 268.8 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal; lithified, gray claystone

• "Unfossiliferous Sandstone overlaid by various shales of dark greyish sandy limestone, clayey limestone, occasionally interrupted by clay, and by dark grey limestone, sometimes alternating. Thickness of dark beds is about 5 m. Upper parts is filled with plants, fishes, shells and insect wings. Pieces of gypsum are not infrequent in these beds.

•This lime series is covered by a thin layer (1/2-1 m) of whitish-yellow limestone. Above that recur sandy & clayey limestones with remains of plants, fishes and rarely of insects." Martynov, 1930

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Preservation: mold/impression
