Where: Ontario, Canada (45.5° N, 81.0° W: paleocoordinates 23.3° S, 55.6° W)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Belodina confluens conodont zone, Lower Member (Lindsay Formation), Edenian to Edenian (460.9 - 449.5 Ma)
• Formerly thought to be Trentonian, but now considered Edenian - Maysvillian (PJW 2017-04-18). Lindsay overlies Verulam Formation. Liberty (the author) separated the Collingwood from the Liberty (the formation), so this is the lower member.

Environment/lithology: deep subtidal; gray, argillaceous limestone and shale
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: Fossils collected by Dr. J. F. Caley and/or the writer, identified by officers of the Geological Survey of Canada.
