• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Dvorce-Prokop Formation, Pragian (410.8 - 407.6 Ma)

• "Lower Devonian (Pragian)"

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Taxonomic list

• Article and faunal list focused on epibiont sampling. Likely biased toward benthic, solitary mesofauna and macrofauna. "Because most of the trilobite specimens were removed from the Hanuš collection and deposited elsewhere, our results are statistically skewed. However, trilobites make up a relatively small percentage of the community population."
