Where: Iowa/Illinois (41.0° N, 89.0° W: paleocoordinates 21.2° S, 34.6° W)
• coordinate based on political unit
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: English River Formation, Tournaisian (358.9 - 346.7 Ma)
• The English River Sandstone is offered as a comparison for the Glen Park Formation. It is assumed that the stratigraphic position of the two formations are equivalent but that they occur in different geographic regions. A full description for the English River is not given in Carter, 1988.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; sandstone
Collection methods: It is unclear what type of collection is represented by the fauna for the English River. Although Carter had described all other collections from museum collections, he did not indicate where the data from this list originated.
