Paleocoordinates:26.9° North, 81.5° West
Basis of coordinate:based on nearby landmark
Geographic resolution:local area
Time
10 m.y. bin:Cenozoic 6
Key time interval:Pliocene - Pleistocene
Age range of interval:5.33300 - 0.01170 m.y. ago
Stratigraphy
Stratigraphic resolution:formation
Stratigraphy comments: The age of the collection is uncertain, but includes species from the Tamiami Formation, Caloosachatchee Marl and Fort Thompson Formation. It is possible that a fauna intermediate in age between that the of Tamiami Formation and the Caloosahatchee Marl is represented.
Lithology and environment
Primary lithology: unlithified sandy marl
Secondary lithology: unlithified sandstone
Includes fossils?Y
Includes fossils?Y
Lithology description: no description was given in text at this point, but based on previous descriptions of the three formations, the Tamiami is calcareous marls and clays, the Caloosahatchee is predominantly sandy marl and the Fort Thompson is unconsolidated sands
Environment:marine indet. Tectonic setting:passive margin
Taphonomy
Modes of preservation:body
Size of fossils:macrofossils
Collection methods and comments
Collection methods:salvage,field collection,survey of museum collection
Reason for describing collection:biostratigraphic analysis
Collection method comments: According to the text, in 1958, the USGS had the "Acline fauna" pit drained of water and Druid Wilson with Stanley Olsen of the Florida Geological Survey made large collections from the walls of the pit, and are to be studied by Mr. Wilson at the National Museum. This collection is not from the pit proper, but from spoil piles.
