• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Megistaspis limbata trilobite zone, Frizy Member (Volkhov Formation), Volkhov (471.1 - 469.2 Ma)

• Meterage is negative because 0 meterage in section is at boundary between Jeltiaki member and overlying Frizy member which rests above this sample.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: open shallow subtidal; lithified limestone

• Limestone beds are tempestites

Size class: mesofossils
