Where: Libya (28.1° N, 13.0° E: paleocoordinates 47.0° S, 32.5° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Aouinet Ouenine III Formation, Frasnian (383.7 - 376.1 Ma)
• Formation said to be "Frasnian s.l.". Top of formation contains nodular limestone with conodonts that indicate Frasnian-Famennian transition. This sample interpreted as upper Frasnian, on basis of occurrence of Uniconus livnensis and Alternatus sp. in overlying sediments.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; burrowed, ferruginous sandstone and claystone
Collection methods: Focus of monograph is brachiopods and bivalves, but other elements are sometimes mentioned in passing.
