Locality Description

"Apart from the type locality, the Linwe Formation is fairly widely distributed in Shan State South and the formation consists of limestone and shale. The lithology varies greatly in most parts of the Shan State South. In the Linwe–Pegin area, the lowermost part of the unit is dominated by a sequence of purple or grey calcareous shale, with some argillaceous limestone intercalations bearing star-shaped cystoid plates followed, in the middle part, by medium- to thick-bedded limestones of nodular appearance, often interbedded with the graptolite-bearing shale and micaceous siltstones. In the upper part, by a light brown to grey, calcareous, micaceous, bioturbated shale–siltstone–marl sequence, intercalated with greenish-grey argillaceous micritic limestone."
