Kwataboahegan Formation composite fauna, Hudson Platform (Devonian to of Canada)

Also known as Reef 2013

Where: Ontario, Canada (51.5° N, 81.0° W: paleocoordinates 32.3° S, 24.5° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Kwataboahegan Formation, Emsian to Emsian (407.6 - 387.7 Ma)

• Formation as a whole spans upper part of Lower Devonian and lower part of Middle Devonian. Conodonts from lower part of formation are Emsian.

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; brown limestone and brown grainstone

• interpreted as reefal/biostromal
• Ref. 10859: "this unit consists of massive to thick bedded biohermal and biostromal limestones..." Ref. 10860: "in its type area consists mainly of medium to dark brown, medium calcarenitic, bituminous, massive to thick bedded, cliff-forming, extremely fossiliferous limestone, weathering light to medium grey. An occasional bed is very dolomitic...

Size class: macrofossils
