Where: Lyon County, Kansas (38.7° N, 96.1° W: paleocoordinates 2.0° S, 28.1° W)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Falls City Limestone Formation (Admire Group), Noginian (301.2 - 300.2 Ma)
• The authors placed the Falls City LS in the Permian, but more recent data indicates that it was late Carboniferous. Collection comes from the upper part of the Falls City LS at this locality.
•The Noginskian Stage is reported as equivalent to the Virgilian Stage.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; limestone
