Loc. 36. North of Tabberabbera (Devonian of Australia)

Where: Victoria, Australia (37.6° S, 147.4° E: paleocoordinates 13.8° S, 175.7° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Kilgower Member (Tabberabbera Formation), Pragian (410.8 - 407.6 Ma)

• Pragian call based on possibility (attributed to Strusz et al.) that the shelly fauna listed here is intermediate in age between Yeringian Cave Hill Formation and Buchanian Buchan Group.

• member-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; calcareous sandstone

• arenaceous sandstone

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: "The rich shelly fauna of the Tabberabbera Formation is mostly confined to the Kilgower Sandstone Member."
