Hintze faunule J-13 from Ibex (Ordovician of the United States)

Where: Utah (38.9° N, 113.5° W: paleocoordinates 7.4° S, 83.0° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Wah Wah Formation (Pogonip Group), Blackhillsian (478.6 - 471.8 Ma)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: deep subtidal ramp; lithified, gray grainstone and lithified siltstone

• Multiple sources indicate that this was a carbonate dominated ramp, with substantial siliciclastic input, below normal wave base, above storm wave base.
• Calcisiltite, medium gray, silty, shaly reentrant under ledge.

Preservation: original silica, replaced with silica
