Where: Russian Federation (52.6° N, 143.2° E: paleocoordinates 52.7° N, 142.6° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Nutovskaya Formation (Nutov Group), Early/Lower Pliocene (5.3 - 3.6 Ma)
• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the middle Nutovskaya suite of the "upper Nutov" horizon, which lies below the "Pomyr" (Pliocene) and above the "Okobykay" (Late Miocene) horizons. THICKNESS: Total thickness of unit is unknown. AGE: Pliocene, on the basis of classification into the "Pomyr" horizon. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: Composite checklist for middle part of the "formation" in this area.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: transition zone or lower shoreface; poorly lithified, fine-grained sandstone and poorly lithified claystone
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: COLLECTOR: Unknown, presumably Sokolov and Tikhonovich (c. 1925). REPOSITORY: Unknown repository.
