•For this Community: "...Scyphocrinites excavatus Horizon reflects the general shallowing of the basin [brecciated Lst]...The brachiopods are commonly articulated, suggesting a quiet water environment...The Comm. occurs in shallow water plains, in places possibly protected by crinoidal debris bars, in about BA 2-3. Lateral transitions to the cephalopod limestones could be observed..."
