Also known as Craighead inlier.

Where: Scotland, United Kingdom (55.3° N, 4.7° W: paleocoordinates 19.4° S, 27.2° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Lady Burn Formation (Drummuck Group), Rawtheyan (448.8 - 445.2 Ma)

• " [...] Ladyburn Mudstone Formation of the Drummuck Group [...] " (Evans, 1993). According to fig. 2 in Evans (1993) the Drummuck Gp. spans the Richmondian (Cautleyan and Rawtheyan) stage. According to Harper (1982, Geol. J. 17(4)) the Lady Burn beds are Rawtheyan in age.

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marginal marine; gray, green, blue, silty mudstone

• "The Lady Burn Formation comprises some 140 m of mainly light grey, unbedded siltstones and mudstones. [...] the bulk of the 140 m of the formation is fairly uniform in composition and structure, the beds ranging from unbedded, light bluish-grey (5B 7/1) silty mudstones to unbedded greenish grey (5GY 6/1) mudstones possessing a pseudonodular habit." Harper (1982).
