• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Monograptus uniformis zone, Lochkovian (416.0 - 412.3 Ma)

Environment/lithology: marine; limestone and shale

• "Dark coloured, dominantly fine-grained platy limestones with abundant intercalations of shales (Radotin facies)...[believed to be from less aerated, deeper, calmer environment than pure carbonate facies]"
