Due to unplanned maintenance of the back-end systems supporting article purchase on Cambridge Core, we have taken the decision to temporarily suspend article purchase for the foreseeable future.

The Cambrian–Ordovician Boundary beds at the Tônismägi section in Tallinn, North Estonia, are represented by siltstones and sandstones with interlayers of clay and kerogenous argillites. In this section, three conodont zones – Cordylodus proavus, C. intermedius and C. rotundatus-angulatus – were established. Graptolites of the Rhabdinopora flabelliforme group were found in the upper part of the C. proavus Zone. This section demonstrates that in suitable facies, species of Rhabdinopora may appear earlier than usually considered.
