Where: England, United Kingdom (52.6° N, 2.8° W: paleocoordinates 86.5° S, 19.7° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Rhombocorniculum cancellatum small shelly zone, Lower Limestone Member (Lower Comley Formation), Branchian (520.0 - 513.0 Ma)
• See Rushton (1974): The Cambrian of Wales & England, pp. 43 - 123 in Holland, C.H. The Cambrian of the British Isles, Norden and Spitzenbergen.
•Hinz suggests Botomian, but Siveter et al. make it clear that it should be Atdabanian.
•Given the zones, Branchian is most appropriate (PJW).
• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
Size class: microfossils
