Fischerwiese, Steinplatte (Triassic of Austria)

Also known as Reef 40

Where: Calcareous Alps, Austria (47.6° N, 13.7° E: paleocoordinates 30.5° N, 17.6° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Zlambach Formation, Rhaetian (208.5 - 201.3 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: perireef or subreef; gray, green marl and lithified limestone

• Corals come mainly from soft, grey and greenish-grey marls, less often from limestones. Coral-bearing limestones are hard, poorly sorted organodetrital calcirudites, or well sorted calcarenites composed of peloids and fine detrital fragments.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils, microfossils

Preservation: recrystallized, original aragonite

Collection methods: bulk, chemical, peel or thin section, acetic, sieve,
