Geography
Country:United States State/province:Florida County:Leon
Coordinates: 30.4° North, 84.6° West (view map)
Paleocoordinates:30.5° North, 83.9° West
Basis of coordinate:based on nearby landmark
Geographic resolution:outcrop
Time
Period:Neogene Epoch:Pliocene
Stage:Piacenzian 10 m.y. bin:Cenozoic 6
Key time interval:Late/Upper Pliocene
Age range of interval:3.60000 - 2.58800 m.y. ago
Stratigraphy
Geological group:Alum Bluff Formation:Jackson Bluff
Stratigraphic resolution:group of beds
Stratigraphy comments: Cancellaria Zone of Choctawhatchee Formation, Alum Bluff Group. The Cancellaria zone is in the highest fossiliferous beds along Harveys CreeK. The total thickness of this zone is 25-30 ft. Late Miocene age based on recent lithostratigraphy. Local section name = Harveys Creek, Basinal/regional section name = Leon. Placed in Jackson Bluff Fm (and hence Late Pliocene) by enterer.
Lithology and environment
Primary lithology:fine,coarse,shelly/skeletal unlithified argillaceous sandstone
Includes fossils?Y
Lithology description: The sediments comprising the Cancellaria Zone consist of a fine to coarse grained clayey sand containing many fossils. Lithification data not reported, but all figured specimens appear to be free of matrix so an unlithified classification is assigned.
Environment:coastal indet.
Geology comments: No reported geologic or paleoenvironmental data. Probably shallow water siliciclastic depositional environment.
Taphonomy
Modes of preservation:body
Size of fossils:macrofossils
Collection methods and comments
Collection methods:field collection
Reason for describing collection:taxonomic analysis
Museum repositories:USNM
Collection method comments: Specimens are lodged in USNM collections. Collected by T.W. Vaughan (1900) and W.C. Mansfield (1925)
Taxonomic list comments:Probably exhaustive for Mollusca. Certainly good nomenclatural treatment.
