Coordinates: 47.5° North, 79.6° West (view map)
Paleocoordinates:20.8° South, 45.4° West
Period:Silurian Epoch:Llandovery
Stage:Telychian 10 m.y. bin:Silurian 1
Key time interval:Telychian Conodont zone: Pterospathodus celloni
Age range of interval:438.50000 - 433.40000 m.y. ago
Stratigraphic resolution:group of beds
Stratigraphy comments: The Thornloe lies above the Earlton and below the Cordell Dolomite. The Pentamerus bed here is the Upper Pentamerus Bed of the formation sensu Bolton & Copeland. However, that is now the basal bed of the formation: the lower beds are now placed in the Earlton Formation (Russell 1984; Radcliffe 1998).
