Comments: first two stages (Tournaisian and Visean) are omitted because they are identical to the global stages Autunian is omitted although it overlaps with Virgililan because it continues into the Permian Dinantian = Tournaisian + Visean and Silesian = Namurian + Westphalian + Stephanian are illustrated but are "unnecessary and should be discouraged"
