QML 1161. First bend in creek from spring due south of Teichert Hills (Devonian of Australia)

Also known as NMVPL 1936

Where: Western Australia, Australia (18.7° S, 126.1° E: paleocoordinates 20.4° S, 124.0° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Palmatolepis rhomboidea conodont zone, Virgin Hills Formation, Early/Lower Famennian (376.1 - 370.6 Ma)

• above stromatolitic horizon

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; grainstone and sandstone

• Within context of larger reef complex. Interpreted in ref. 10549 as marginal slope and basin facies.
• Ref. 10549: "The Virgin Hills Fromation is typically red and consists of calcarenite, calcirudite and megabreccia with interbedded sandstone, siltstone, and conglomerate; clastic sediments become more common in the basin facies."

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Collection methods: Ref. 10548 says this is NMVPL1938, but cross-check with ref. 10562 suggests it is in fact 1936.
