Where: Sardinia, Italy (39.5° N, 8.5° E: paleocoordinates 58.8° S, 51.6° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: M. transgrediens zone, Fluminimaggiore Formation, Pridoli (423.0 - 419.2 Ma)
• In this study, isolated blocks were correlated on basis of contained conodonts. Fluminimaggiore Fm., Upper Pridoli, M. transgrediens zone. Very similar composition to community in Bohemia suggests same age.
• member-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; shelly/skeletal, gray wackestone and calcareous shale
•For this community: "Disarticulated shells occur in the dark micritic to biomicritic lenticular limestone which originally formed horzion in the calcareous shale."
Collection methods: Table 6 gives numerical abundances and inferred life habits of bivalves.
