Florida Paulista - Fazenda Nelson Tarnorches outcrop (Cretaceous to of Brazil)

Also known as FP1

Where: São Paulo, Brazil (21.6° S, 51.2° W: paleocoordinates 25.7° S, 34.3° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Adamantina Formation (Bauru Group), Late/Upper Campanian to Late/Upper Campanian (83.5 - 66.0 Ma)

• Whereas a Turonian–Santonian age for the Adamantina Formation, based on ostracods and charophytes, has been proposed (Dias-Brito et al. 2001), other authors have argued for a Campanian–Maastrichtian age, based on vertebrate fossils and an alternative interpretation of the ostracod fauna (e.g. Gobbo-Rodrigues et al. 1999; Fernandes and Coimbra 2000). Most recently, stratigraphic work on the Bauru Basin has argued for a late Campanian–early Maastrichtian age for this stratigraphic unit (Batezelli 2017).

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; tabular, fine-grained, red, yellow sandstone and red, yellow, conglomeratic sandstone

• "The outcrop exposes conglomeratic, medium and fine sandstones, with up to 1 cm quartz pebbles of yellowish to reddish color, though they are whitish at the base. Sandstones and shale clasts may also occur. Trough cross-beddings are observed in the conglomeratic sandstones with plane-parallel laminations, and small tabular cross-beds are observed in the fine ones."

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Collected in 2001

Collection methods: quarrying, mechanical,
