Wolayer area, Mt Seewarte, Oulodus elegans detorta zone, sample Se/01/05/04 (Silurian of Austria)

Where: Austria (46.6° N, 12.9° E: paleocoordinates 42.5° S, 52.7° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Oulodus elegans detorta conodont zone, Megarella Formation, Pridoli (423.0 - 419.2 Ma)

• Pridolian age

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; grainstone and dolomite

• Grainstones were found to range from bioclasts with little or no micritisation to coated grains wherein the rim is extensively micritized around the entire grain. The first of these accords with rather rapid cementation of components after breakage and deposition. Components are crinoid stem plates with subordinate skeletal grains of brachiopods and bryozoans. Peloids are sparse or even lacking.
• Grainstone + dolomite

Size classes: mesofossils, microfossils
