Where: Newton County, Arkansas (35.9° N, 93.0° W: paleocoordinates 12.4° S, 35.2° W)
• coordinate stated in text
• small collection-level geographic resolution
When: Hindsville Formation, Chesterian (339.4 - 318.1 Ma)
• The Hindsville formation is the lowermost Chesterian unit in northern Arkansas and unconformably overlies the Meramecian Boone Formation, but only the Hindsville is exposed in this small outcrop.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; lithified, ooidal, shelly/skeletal, sandy grainstone
Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
Collected by N. A. Heim in 2007
Collection methods: bulk, mechanical,
• A bulk sample of approximately 2 gallons was collected and fossils were removed in the lab by crack out.
