Entomozoacean ostracods, Frasnian-Famennian boundary, Plucki section (Devonian of Poland)

Where: Poland (50.8° N, 21.1° E: paleocoordinates 18.1° S, 30.9° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Frasnian (382.7 - 372.2 Ma)

• "The F-F boundary is located near the top of a 30 cm thick, dark cephalopod-bivalve-homoctenid (coquine) limestone bed. This bed is believed to be equivalent to the German Upper Kellwasser Limestone, a black bituminous limestone deposited under hypoxic conditions in the Kellwasser Valley..." Bed is about 12 m above base of section.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; black limestone

• Sequence is interpreted by author as "deep intrashelf basin (outer part of the epicontinental sea), which was situated on the SE edge of the Laurussian palaeocontinent in a subtropical belt..."
• See stratigraphy comments.
