230 (Devonian of Austria)

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

• coordinate stated in text

When: Icriodus steinachensis β conodont zone, Findenig Formation, Early/Lower Devonian (419.2 - 393.3 Ma)

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

• This unit is represented by 20 m of reddish nodular mudstones and wackestones. Orthoceratid nautiloids and hardly visible dacryconoarids (Alberti 1985) are the only fossils observable in the field. The Lochkovian/ Pragian boundary is drawn just above the formation boundary by the occurrence of the dacryoconarid No - wakia acuaria (Richter) at the base of the Findenig Fm. (Schönlaub 1980, Alberti 1985).

Size class: microfossils
