217 (Devonian of Austria)

Where: Austria (46.6° N, 12.9° E: paleocoordinates 44.8° S, 52.4° E)

• coordinate stated in text

When: Ancyrodelloides trigonicus conodont zone, La Valute Formation, Early/Lower Devonian (419.2 - 393.3 Ma)

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; lithified limestone

• The flat area south of the steep meadow is represented by 18 m thick limestones of the La Valute Formation (Corradini et al. 2015c) which was previously named “Bodenkalk” by Schönlaub (1985). It is composed of grey, coarse-bedded, very compact cephalopod limestones (mudstones to wackestones). The Rauchkofel Boden Section is the type section of the La Valute Fm. As in other areas (i. e., Mt. Zermula: Pondrelli et al. 2015, Corradini et al. 2016) the upper part the La Valute Fm. becomes more marly and nodular and gradually passes into the overlying Findenig Fm. (Corriga et al. 2011, Spalletta et al. 2015).

Size class: microfossils
