• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified, shelly/skeletal, yellow sandstone

• ENVIRONMENT: Range of shallow marine environments, proximal to hard shoreline with which sediments that contain the collections have transgressed. Section subsequently shallows and represents an embayment with restricted circulation during the Stampien.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Unconsolidated sandstone. LITHIFICATION: Unlithified, assumed based of figured specimens, excellent preservation, free of sediment.

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: original aragonite
