Jarque. Capa 205 (Cambrian of Spain)

Where: Zaragoza, Spain (41.6° N, 1.7° W: paleocoordinates 55.2° S, 110.5° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Solenopleuropsis trilobite zone, Murero Formation, St Davids (513.0 - 501.0 Ma)

• Uppermost Caesaraugustan - lowermost Languedocian. Probably Series 3 - Stage 5. Figure indicates Languedocian & thus Solenopleuropsis thorali zone. However: Zamora's dissertation indicates that it is S. ribeiroi zone. So, I'm just going with the more general Solenopleuropsis zone.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: offshore; shale

• Shales and some interbedded carbonate nodules

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
