Where: Park County County, Wyoming (45.0° N, 109.6° W: paleocoordinates 28.2° S, 47.1° W)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Beartooth Butte Formation, Emsian (407.6 - 393.3 Ma)
• age based on dispersed spore data (McGregor, personal communication to Tanner).
• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: coastal; lithified, gray, calcareous mudstone and lithified, calcareous shale
