Locality Description

In Wunbye formation the unit consistsmainly of a succession of medium- to thickbedded limestones and dolomites with minor irregular patches and lenses of yellow or dark brown siltstones. The limestone is finely crystalline, light to dark grey, locally oolitic, repeatedly interbedded with buff or yellow-coloured materials in the forms of burrows, specks, pellets or regular and irregular laminations. The unit conformably overlies the Lokepyin Formation of Early Ordovician age and underlies the Nan-On Formation of Late Ordovician age. Fossils from the Linwe area include: the nautiloids Actinoceras cf. moeseini, Actinoceras sp., Ormoceras cf.
