Pillara Range, SE of Menyous Gap, Canning Basin (Devonian of Australia)

Also known as Geological Survey of Western Australia, Perth, Samples 37111 & 37149A-D

Where: Western Australia, Australia (18.4° S, 125.9° E: paleocoordinates 18.3° S, 131.5° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Gogo Formation, Early/Lower Frasnian (383.7 - 382.4 Ma)

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; shale and concretionary, sandy limestone

• "The Gogo Formation, which contains radiolarian-bearing rocks, is a basinal succession which interfingers with marginal slope facies. It consists mainly of shale, siltstone and thin lenticular beds of limestone (Nazarov et al. 1982). Calcareous nodules which weather out of the shales are composed of sandy micritic limestone and commonly contain well preserved fossils." (Aitchison 1993)

Size class: microfossils

Collection methods: acetic

• Repository: Geological Survey of Western Australia (GSWA), Perth

•"I report here on additional material from the same locality [as Aitchison 1993]" (Won 1997)
