P12, Tucker Butte, Grindstone-Twelvemile Creek area (Permian of the United States)

Where: Crook County, Oregon (43.9° N, 119.8° W: paleocoordinates 19.7° N, 36.1° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Coyote Butte Formation, Kungurian (279.3 - 272.3 Ma)

• Mesogondolella idahoensis and N. pequopensis suggest Kungurian age (Wardlaw et al., 1982)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; limestone and sandstone

• Sandstone beds are widespread but poorly exposed in the Coyote Butte Formation, limestone lenses are olive-grey, crinoidal fusulinid limestones in lower part of formation; Purer, finer-grained, deep-olive in colour and better bedded in the upper part with rarer fusulinids and common brachiopods.

Size class: macrofossils
