Loc. M-05: top of low hill, SW┬╝ S13 T40N R2W (Ordovician of the United States)

Where: Crawford County, Missouri (38.0° N, 91.4° W: paleocoordinates 23.4° S, 81.0° W)

• coordinate based on political unit

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Symphysurina bulbosa trilobite zone, Van Buren Member (Gasconade Formation), Gasconadian (485.4 - 477.7 Ma)

• The chert in which the fossils occur may or may not be in place stratigraphically. So, a rating of "A" through "F" indicates stratigraphi reliability with "A" = no question as to stratigraphic position of horizon and "F" = residual material of different ages. RATING: D

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified chert and dolomite

• Strata are in pockets of the Ozark Uplift.

Preservation: original calcite, replaced with silica

Reposited in the USNM
