Lukow, Podlasie region, Lubelskie (Jurassic of Poland)

Where: Poland (51.9° N, 22.4° E: paleocoordinates 43.7° N, 28.6° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Late/Upper Callovian (164.7 - 161.2 Ma)

• Quenstedtoceras lamberti Zone

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: transition zone or lower shoreface; poorly lithified, concretionary, black claystone

• Most of the gastropods studied in this monograph come from clayey facies of more or less open sea environments (Lukow: The source of the Callovian clay is probably the bottom of the Baltic Sea, northward from Gdansk).
• Late Callovian black clay with limestone concretions.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils, microfossils

Preservation: original aragonite

Collection methods: sieve,

• The collection comes from several sources. The largest part was collected by G. Jakubowski (1958-1966) and deposited at the Museum of the Earth PAS in Warsaw.
