Wolayer area, Mt Seewarte, Oulodus elegans detorta zone, sample Se/01/03/04 (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
