Where: Ukraine (48.6° N, 25.7° E: paleocoordinates 47.6° S, 75.3° E)
• coordinate based on political unit
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Chortkov Formation, Lochkovian (419.2 - 410.8 Ma)
• Chortkov Horizon (Zone 10 of Simeiradski, 1906). Plotnick gives age as Lower Lochkovian. Following correlation chart of Gritsenko et al. (1999, PBDB ref. 6695), Upper Lochkovian seems more likely.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; yellow marl
