Also known as Locality N (Moran, 1952)
Where: Mason County, West Virginia (38.8° N, 81.9° W: paleocoordinates 4.9° S, 16.8° W)
• coordinate estimated from map
• hand sample-level geographic resolution
When: Dunkard Group, Asselian to Asselian (298.9 - 290.1 Ma)
• "This area lies in the Dunkard group, but the horizon is uncertain" (Romer, 1952).
•The age of the Dunkard group, wich is not well constrained, here is based on correlation chart (fig. 4) in Wellstead (1991, Bull. AMNH 209).
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: terrestrial; sandstone
Size class: macrofossils
