Wolayer area, Mt Seewarte, Pelekysgnathus serratus zone, sample Se/03/23/04 (Devonian of Austria)

Where: Austria (46.6° N, 12.9° E: paleocoordinates 46.7° S, 53.8° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pelekysgnathus serratusnsis conodont zone, Hohe Warte Formation, Pragian (410.8 - 407.6 Ma)

• E. s. kindlei zone

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; framestone

• Frame builders are tabulate corals, stromatoporoids, calcareous green algae and calcimicrobes. Organisms of the carbonate factory usually formed small patch reefs and biostromes. The major part of the Hohe Warte Formation consists of reefal debris fringing buildups. The frequency of patch reefs increases in the upper part of the massive limestone.
• Framestone

Size classes: mesofossils, microfossils
