At Olea, at a part of the former quarry over 25 m (Cambrian of Denmark)

Where: Bornholm, Denmark (55.0° N, 14.9° E: paleocoordinates 43.1° S, 28.3° W)

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Solenopleura brachymetopa trilobite zone, Andrarum Limestone Formation, Menevian (513.0 - 501.0 Ma)

• Solenopleura brachymetopa biozone; basal part of Forchhammeri stage
