Where: Libya (28.1° N, 13.0° E: paleocoordinates 47.0° S, 32.5° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Aouinet Ouenine II Formation, Givetian to Givetian (387.7 - 372.2 Ma)
• Formation said to be "Givetian s.l. and basal Frasnian". Samples in upper part of formation. Authors suggest early Frasnian age, on basis of Cyrtospirifer, but these are at about same stratigraphic level as other samples (PBDB coll. 35615) that are said to be late Givetian or early Frasnian.
• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; siltstone and sandstone
Collection methods: Focus of monograph is brachiopods and bivalves, but other elements are sometimes mentioned in passing.
