Somewhere in Guizhou (Cambrian to of China)

Also known as Wulonqing Member, Tsanglangpu Formation of Malong, Yunnan - Holmer et. al 1997

Where: Guizhou, China (26.8° N, 106.8° E: paleocoordinates 30.8° N, 158.9° E)

When: Palaeolenus - Megapalaeolenus trilobite zone, Wulongqing Formation (Tsanglangpu Group), Atdabanian to Atdabanian (520.0 - 513.0 Ma)

• Regalado Fernandez & Francisco Sour-Tovar (2022) state that Dicerodiscus tsunyiensis is from the Olenellus zone. However: that's not a zone in Guizhou, and the North American zone. The equivalent zones would be the Palaeolenus and Megapalaeolenus zones from the Wulongqing member (now Wulongqing Formation).
