Where: Konya, Turkey (37.4° N, 31.9° E: paleocoordinates 37.4° N, 31.9° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• small collection-level geographic resolution
When: Acadoparadoxides mureroensis trilobite zone, Black Limestone Member (Cal Tepe Formation), Toyonian (516.0 - 513.0 Ma)
• higher A. mureroensis zone (Iberian scale) or higher Cephalopyge notabilis zone (Moroccan scale) = early Middle Cambrian; a few specimen from the underlying Black Limestone Member (Protolenus (Hupeolenus) zone).
•This is basal Leonian (PJW), but we do not have the Iberian scale entered yet. Sarmiento et al. (2001) initially put this in the Protolenus zone, which is uppermost Bilbian, but Dean (2005) revised this.
• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: deep subtidal; lithified wackestone
Size class: mesofossils
