Where: Piaui, Brazil (6.2° S, 41.4° W: paleocoordinates 79.9° S, 8.2° E)
• coordinate based on political unit
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Pimenteira Formation, Emsian to Emsian (407.6 - 387.7 Ma)
• Collection not explicitly said to come from Pimenteira Fmn., but this seems rather clear from stratigraphic and geographic context.
•"Although the age of the [Pimenteira Fm.] is probably restricted to the Middle Devonian along the eastern outcrop belt [of which this locality is a part] its full range is Emsian through Famennian in the subsurface of central portions of the basin."
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; sandstone and siltstone
