Where: Lucas County, Ohio (41.5° N, 83.8° W: paleocoordinates 38.7° S, 30.9° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Dundee Limestone Formation, Eifelian (393.3 - 387.7 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; lithified packstone and lithified wackestone

• The paleoenvironment of the Dundee Formation was a shallow, tropical, high-energy shelf with intervals of decreased energy and occasional storm events.
• The lower unit 10 is a packstone, grading upward into the wackestone of unit 11, transitioning into the nodular-bedded unit 12 grainstone.
