Also known as Donnybrooke; Tafelberg; Swart Kei River
Where: Eastern Cape, South Africa (32.1° S, 26.5° E: paleocoordinates 66.5° S, 21.2° W)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• small collection-level geographic resolution
When: Katberg Formation (Beaufort Group), Induan to Induan (252.3 - 247.2 Ma)
• Somewhere between the middle part of the Katberg Fm. and the lowermost part of the overlying Burgersdorp Fm. because this is the interval (upper Lystrosaurus Assemblage Zone) to which Procolophon is restricted (see, e.g., Cisneros, 2008, Paleoworld 17(2)).
•Cisneros (2008, Palaeont. Afr. 43), based on Kitching (1977), suspects all Procolophon specimens from Donnybrook to come "from the same localized band of dark red mudstone, approximately one metre thick, within the Katberg Formation."
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: fluvial; red mudstone
Size class: macrofossils
