8B (Devonian of Italy)

Where: Italy (46.6° N, 13.1° E: paleocoordinates 50.6° S, 57.5° E)

• coordinate stated in text

When: Icriodus hesperius conodont zone, Rauchkofel Formation, Lochkovian (419.2 - 410.8 Ma)

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone and black shale

• The Rauchkofel Fm is here represented by about 16 m of dark limestone, with thin black shale intercalations. Limestone beds are thicker in the lower part of the units, where at least three 20-25 cm thick beds bearing crinoid remains (mainly loboliths) are evident. Well preserved nautiloids occur just above the lobolith beds. The thickness of beds decreases in the upper part of the unit before the transition to the Nölbling Fm.

Size class: microfossils
