Where: Czech Republic (49.3° N, 17.0° E: paleocoordinates 8.4° S, 18.2° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Culm facies Member (Myslejovice Formation), Chadian (345.3 - 345.0 Ma)
• AGE: Placed in Chadian to avoid stratigraphic orphaning.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: offshore; argillaceous, sandy siltstone and claystone
•Fossiliferous layers mostly belong to the shale facies of a flysch character and pronounced rhythms of cm-order. The rhythms mostly show positive gradation: the base is usually represented by a fairly coarse greywacke component; the higher part consists of siltstones to pelites. Abundant organic remains are usually concentrated in thin dark organic rich laminae in the upper part of the sequence."
