Wolayer area, Mt Seewarte, Caudicriodus celtibericus zone, sample Se/04/13/04 (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: Caudicriodus celtibericus conodont zone, Hohe Warte Formation, Pragian (410.8 - 407.6 Ma)

• P. pireneae

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; bindstone

• Some thin-sections show mixed facies classified as frame- to bindstones with microbial mats binding sediment particles between the coral and stromatoporoid colonies. True bindstones occur at the base of the Seewarte Formation. The limestones consist of thin-bedded fenestral mudstones. Common constituents are microbialites, ostracod valves, gastropods and peloids between spar-filled stromatactis.
• Bindstone

Size classes: mesofossils, microfossils
