Where: Hunan, China (27.8° N, 111.6° E: paleocoordinates 4.1° S, 115.0° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Qiziqiao Formation, Givetian (387.7 - 382.7 Ma)
• member-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified reef rocks and lithified, fine-grained, calcareous bindstone
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: mechanical,
• the reefcore is divided in two sections in which the abundance of the fossils changes.
•Lower part: Stromatopora 45%, Hexagonaria 30%, Alveolites 6%, between the rest Thamnopora and Temnophyllum are most abundant.
•Upper part: no Hexagonaria, Stromatoporoids 60%, Alveolites 10%, Rugosa and Tabulata are increased to 29%, from which Crassialveolitella and Alveolitella are relatively rich (about 2/3) and Thamnopora (about 1/3).
