Although precise correlation of these subunits with the rock sequence of Gotland has yet to be done, we can roughly claim that (1) a large number of the Wenlock units that crop out on northern Gotland (Tofta, lowermost Slite beds) correspond to a stratigraphic gap at the boundary between the Vilsandi and Maasi beds on northern Saaremaa, (2) a great part of the uppermost Slite beds corresponds to a stratigraphic gap between the Jaagarahu and Rootsikula stages on Saaremaa.
