Where: New York (44.3° N, 74.2° W: paleocoordinates 39.2° S, 24.2° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Coeymans Limestone Formation, Helderberg (416.0 - 391.9 Ma)

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shallow subtidal; gray grainstone

• 2003:05:03 SEP environmental call based on given description and other Coeymans samples
• "dark-gray medium-grained to coarse-grained limestone, weathering brownish orange on joint surfaces. The dominant constituents are calcite fossil fragments (mainly crinoids and brachiopods) and sparry calcite cement. Small, irregular wisps and lenses of hematite...show up in thin section."
