Feltrim Hill, Waulsortian buildup, main reef limestone (Carboniferous of Ireland)

Also known as Reef 437

Where: Ireland (53.4° N, 6.2° W: paleocoordinates 13.2° S, 2.9° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Feltrim Formation, Tournaisian (358.9 - 346.7 Ma)

• Late Courceyan, Lower Caninia Zone

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified limestone

• The reef core itself is almost devoid of fossils apart from fenestrate bryozoans. Fossils occur outside and away from the reef core and are sporadically scattered, and only rarely as pocket accumulations.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: quarrying,
