Pincrest Member, Tamiami Formation (unspecified localities) (Pliocene of the United States)

Where: Florida (27.3° N, 82.5° W: paleocoordinates 27.4° N, 81.9° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Pinecrest Member (Tamiami Formation), Late/Upper Pliocene (3.6 - 2.6 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Pincrest Mbr of the Tamiami Fm, Okeechobee Grp, which is interfingers with the Golden Gate Mbr, and overlies the Buckingham Mbr, both of the Tamiami Fm. Correlative with the Yorktown, Goose Neck, Duplin, and Jackson Bluff Fms. THICKNESS: Varies between 2 and 20 m across areal extent. AGE: Late Pliocene. Based on macrofossil biostratigraphy the unit is throught to represent the middle Piacenzian. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: Checklist representative of entire member.

• member-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified, shelly/skeletal sandstone

• ENVIRONMENT: Shallow marine siliciclastic setting.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Well-sorted, clean quartz, highly fossiliferous sand. LITHIFICATION: Unithified, based on facies description and figured specimens.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: surface (float), surface (in situ),

• COLLECTOR: Unknown, presumably the authors and others. REPOSITORY: No repository stated.
