SNK4, Nakadaira (Permian of Japan)

Where: Japan (39.0° N, 141.5° E: paleocoordinates 19.4° N, 110.5° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Hosoo Formation, Kungurian (279.5 - 272.5 Ma)

• In the Kamiyasse area, a late Artinskian–early Kungurian fusulinid Pseudofusulina fusiformis (Schellwien) occurs from near the top of the Nakadaira Formation (Tazawa, 1973, 1976); and some Roadian ammonoids Adrianites sp. and Demarezites sp. occur from the middle Hosoo Formation (Ehiro and Misaki, 2005). Therefore, a Kungurian age has been expected for the lower Hosoo Formation.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; lithified, gray, sandy shale

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: mold/impression
