Where: Ukraine (48.6° N, 26.9° E: paleocoordinates 28.3° S, 7.0° E)
• coordinate based on political unit
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Restevo Subsuite Formation, Llandovery to Llandovery (443.4 - 427.4 Ma)
• Restevo subsuite of Yaruga series (Kitaigorodian superhorizon or "stage"). Fig. 38.1 gives correlation chart.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; gray claystone and marl
Collection methods: Counts are given for trilobites. It seems implicit that all elements are known from type locality, even though the community is more widely distributed.
