Wolayer area, Mt Seewarte, Latericriodus steinachensis zone, sample 02/15b/05 (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: Latericriodus steinachensis conodont zone, Rauchkofel Formation, Pragian (410.8 - 407.6 Ma)

• ? E. s. sulcatus zone

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; dolomite and grainstone

• 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.
• Peloidal pack- to grainstone + dolomite

Size classes: mesofossils, microfossils
