Bed above bed 325, Rauchkofel section, Woyaler facies (Silurian to of Austria)

Where: Austria (46.7° N, 13.0° E: paleocoordinates 18.8° S, 30.6° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

When: Ludlow to Ludlow (427.4 - 419.2 Ma)

• Bed 325 may be in siluricus zone (Ludfordian) according to stratigraphic chart , but this is ambiguous.

Environment/lithology: marine; limestone

• "Wolayer facies = micritic nodular limestones with reduced thicknesses of about 30 m due to stratigraphic gaps in the Lower Silurian."
