Locality Description

"From field mapping of the area, it is suggested that these two units – the Wetwin Shale and the Padaukpin Limestone – are possibly the same units occurring on opposite limbs of the ‘Wetwin Anticline’. The Wetwin Shale is chiefly composed of yellowish, black shale. Corals and brachiopods are abundant in the Padaukpin Limestone; at the Padaukpin locality, this indicates that the Maymyo Formation is of Eifelian age (Reed 1908; Aye Ko Aung 1995; Nu Nu Wai 2004; Khaing Khaing San 2005). A substantial brachiopod fauna from Padaukpin, about 12 km ENE of Pyin Oo Lwin (formerly Maymyo township), has yielded many brachiopods including the large fauna described by Anderson et al. (1969). Anderson identified 32 species, all characteristic of the Rhenish–Bohemian Faunal Province which is widespread in Asia as well as Europe."
