Where: Austria (47.0° N, 13.0° E: paleocoordinates 19.6° S, 20.2° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Hastarian (360.7 - 353.8 Ma)

• sulcata Zone

•JA: originally entered as Tournaisian, but Hastarian based on zonal assignment; see Somerville 2008

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; gray, argillaceous limestone

• Sequence described as pelagic, "cephalopod" limestone. "32 cm thick light grey to yellowish and in part fainly pink colored limestone bed. Residual clay can either be arranged irregularly to form a network on the surface or can be concentrated as clay parting parallel to bedding planes to indicate four indistinctly recognizable subbeds...
