Where: Poland (51.6° N, 22.5° E: paleocoordinates 17.9° S, 3.2° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Pridoli (423.0 - 419.2 Ma)

Environment/lithology: marine; gray, green claystone and calcareous siltstone

• "The section ... represents a somewhat shallower zone [than Ciepielow and Barstow sections] in the marine basin at the Silurian-Devonian boundary...Only part of the Upper Podlasian was penetrated, and consists of grey greenish claystones with a silky lustre. Poorly preserved fossils occur in fine calcareous siltstone intercalations."
