Where: Wabaunsee County, Kansas (39.1° N, 96.1° W: paleocoordinates 1.7° S, 27.9° W)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Hawxby Shale Member (Onaga Shale Formation), Noginian (301.2 - 300.2 Ma)
• Collection comes from the lowest limestone bed in the Hawxby Shale member. The arthors placed the Hawxby in the Permian, but more recent data indicates that it was late Carboniferous.
•The Noginskian Stage is reported as being equivalent to the Virgilian Stage.
• member-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; limestone
