The Cambrian succession of the Tingskullen drill core from northern Öland comprises Cambrian Series 2 and Miaolingian (Wuliuan Stage) siliciclastic strata. The major portion of the succession is represented by the Miaolingian Borgholm Formation, which, in ascending order, is subdivided into the Mossberga, Bårstad and Äleklinta members. The Äleklinta Member is barren of body fossils, whereas the Mossberga and Bårstad members are moderately to highly fossiliferous and biostratigraphically reasonably well constrained. Trilobites and agnostoids from the Bårstad Member are indicative of the Acadoparadoxides pinus Zone. The Mossberga Member has not yielded any zonal guide fossils but is tentatively assigned to the Eccaparadoxides insularis Zone. A δ13Corg curve throughout the Borgholm Formation shows a general positive trend up-section without any distinctive excursion, suggesting that the Wuliuan Acadoparadoxides (Baltoparadoxidesoelandicus Superzone (the ‘Oelandicus beds’) of Öland is younger than the negative Redlichiid–Olenellid Extinction Carbon isotope Excursion (ROECE), which is known from near the top of Stage 4 and close to the traditional ‘Lower–Middle Cambrian boundary’ in several parts of the world.
