Shenjiawan, unit 7, 22 (Cambrian of China)

Where: Hunan, China (29.1° N, 111.0° E: paleocoordinates 20.7° N, 147.1° E)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: slope; lithified limestone

• Jiangnan Slope Belt
• argillaceous, laminated limestone

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: cast, mold/impression
