Acervularia sokolensis Community, Goloskov subsuite, Podolia (Silurian of Ukraine)

Also known as Reef 2410

Where: Ukraine (48.5° N, 26.7° E: paleocoordinates 21.3° S, 7.5° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Goloskov Subsuite Formation, Ludlow (427.4 - 423.0 Ma)

• Goloskov subsuite of Konovka suite of the Malinovtsy series. Tiritian horizon/stage. See correlation chart, fig. 38.1.

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; shelly/skeletal reef rocks

• "bioherms...Spacing of the varied populations is irregular (typical for bioherms). Community assigned to BA 2 and nearshore part of BA 3."
• "Occurs in bioherms, with remains of different invertebrates. Detrital sediment occurring around bioherms indicates turbulent zone. Most of the corals and stromatoporoids attached to hard bioherm surfaces."
