Where: Guangxi, China (22.0° N, 108.5° E: paleocoordinates 1.2° N, 104.1° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Shiti Reservoir Formation, Famennian (372.2 - 358.9 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Shiti Reservoir Fm, which lies conformably on the Xiaodong Gp (Middle Devonian) and is unconformably overlain by the Shikia Fm (Carboniferous). AGE: Famennian, on the basis of microfossil biostratigraphy. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From the upper part of the formation.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
