AN74 (Silurian of Canada)

Where: Quebec, Canada (49.2° N, 62.5° W: paleocoordinates 21.4° S, 35.0° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Ozarkodina clavula conodont zone, Gun River or Goeland Formation, Aeronian (440.8 - 438.5 Ma)

• PJW: Was Gun River or basal Jupiter; in 2004 basal Jupiter was Goeland member, which is now in Meniér formation. These beds should span the Ozarkodina clavula conodont zone.

• Gun River: hard, slabby, well-bedded micritic limestone and minor shale; flat pebble conglomerates in upper part. Jupiter: soft shales and limestone interbeds. Does not specify which lithology fossils sampled from

Size class: macrofossils

Reposited in the GSC
