Where: Norway (78.9° N, 18.0° E: paleocoordinates 78.9° N, 18.0° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Olenidsletta Member (Valhallfonna Formation), Arenig (478.6 - 466.0 Ma)
• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From Olenidsletta Mbr within the Valhallfonna Formation, which is overlain by the Profilbekken Mbr (same fm). AGE: Areginian; Didymograptus hirundo graptolite zone. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: 90-100 m above the base of the Olenidsletta Member. PJW: This member is not in the hirundo graptolite zone! There is not hirundo aged rock in this sequence.
•JA: reassigned to the Darriwilian on the assumption that the D. hirundo zone is the British Expansograptus hirundo zone
• member-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; lithified, glauconitic, shelly/skeletal, brown, calcareous, cherty/siliceous limestone
