Windmill Quarry, off of Windmill Road & Summer Hill South, Cork (Carboniferous of Ireland)

Where: Cork, Ireland (51.9° N, 8.5° W: paleocoordinates 6.3° S, 0.1° W)

When: Coral Zone H other zone, Coolbane Member (Liscarroll Limestone Formation), Brigantian (336.0 - 326.4 Ma)

• Lower part of D2 zone.

• member-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: deep subtidal shelf; bioturbated, peloidal, blue packstone and bioturbated, peloidal, blue wackestone

• The bulk of this member was deposited in a deep-water, subtidal, open-marine environment, below fair-weather wavebase, but above storm wavebase. Bioturbation and occasional storm events in this environment are considered to have combined to generate the abundant intraclasts in this member. (From Gallagher & Somerville 1997).
• Coolbane Member consists of well-bedded (0.1±2.5 m), steely blue, bioturbated, spicule-rich peloidal packstones and wackestones. (From Gallagher & Somerville 1997).

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Reposited in the BMNH
