Where: Malopolskie, Poland (50.1° N, 19.6° E: paleocoordinates 17.8° N, 26.3° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Olenekian (251.2 - 247.2 Ma)

• earliest Late Olenekian (Yarenskian) on the basis of tetrapod (temnospondyl) biostratigraphy (Shishkin and Sulej 2009)
