Wolayer area, Mt Seewarte, Caudicriodus celtibericus zone, sample Se/04/12/04 (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; 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
