PRI Loc. 1596 (sample 29, replicate A) - McClellans Farm [Shoal River Fm] (Miocene of the United States)

Also known as Station 41

Where: Walton County, Florida (30.7° N, 86.1° W: paleocoordinates 31.0° N, 83.4° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Shoal River Formation (Alum Bluff Group), Serravallian (13.8 - 11.6 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Shoal River Fm of the Alum Bluff, which lies between the Chipola Fm (Early Miocene) and the Chochtawatchee Fm [Early Pliocene). AGE: Early Miocene (Gardener 1947); Middle Miocene in Vokes (1990) and Portell et al. (2006), although Jones et al. (1993) reports 87Sr/86Sr ratios that yielded average age estimates of 12.4 Ma [=Serravalian]. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From unknown position within formation.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified, calcareous marl and unlithified, calcareous sandstone

• ENVIRONMENT: Shallow marine siliciclastic.
• LITHOLOGY: Marls, sands, clays, for the most part unconsolidated, in places highly calcareous

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by Harris et al. in 1935; reposited in the PRI

• COLLECTOR: G.D. Harris, R.H. Flowers and K.V.W. Palmer, 1935. REPOSITORY: PRI, Ithaca NY. COMMENTS: Replicate 1 of 3 splits from PRI Loc. 1596.
