Also known as Nitikin Locality 136
Where: Kazakhstan (44.7° N, 75.4° E: paleocoordinates 14.9° S, 74.9° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Climacograptus caudatus - Climacograptus morrisi graptolite zone, Degeres Member (Dulankara Formation), Katian (453.0 - 445.2 Ma)
• Dulankara Stage. Popov & Cocks (2006: txt. f. 3) show that this is the Degeres member.
•Late Caradoc age is defined by the underlying occurrence of the graptolite Pseudoclimacograptus scharenbergi in the uppermost part of the underlying Anderken Formation (Nikitin 1972; Popov et al. 1999; Text-fig. 2), which is characteristic of the Climacograptus caudatus Biozone, the local equivalent of the Climacograptus clingani Biozone.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: coastal; lithified siltstone
Size class: macrofossils
