Where: Austria (47.0° N, 13.0° E: paleocoordinates 21.3° S, 22.2° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Late/Upper Famennian (364.7 - 360.7 Ma)

• praesulcata Zone

• Sequence described as pelagic, "cephalopod" limestone. "32 cm thick light grey to yellowish and in part fainly pink colored limestone bed. Residual clay can either be arranged irregularly to form a network on the surface or can be concentrated as clay parting parallel to bedding planes to indicate four indistinctly recognizable subbeds...
