Locality Description

"Fossils from the Linwe area include: the nautiloids Actinoceras cf. moeseini, Actinoceras sp., Ormoceras cf. The sediments and sedimentary structures found commonly in the Wunbye Formation, such as cross-laminations, ripple marks, abundant pellets, intraclasts, bioclasts, horizontal burrows, high fossil diversity and high faunal content, are indicators of a subtidal environment of deposition. An extremely shallow-marine environment is suggested by the presence of the receptaculitid Isherites burmensis Rietschel & Nitecki."
