Also known as DC 92

Where: Dominican Republic (18.5° N, 71.7° W: paleocoordinates 18.5° N, 71.6° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pleistocene (2.6 - 0.0 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: Unknown lithosratigraphy. From "coast limestone". AGE: Undifferentiated Pleistocene. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: Unknown position within section.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lithified limestone

• ENVIRONMENT: Environmental data not reported in text.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Limestone. LITHIFICATION: Lithified, assumed on the basis of facies description.

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by Condit in 1919; reposited in the USNM

• COLLECTOR: D. C. Condit. REPOSITORY: Not stated, but numbers presumably correspond to USGS collections, hence probably reposited in USNM.
