Changle Coal Mine (Eocene of China)

Also known as 2 km east of Wutu Village; Wutu Coal Mine

Where: Shandong, China (36.5° N, 118.9° E: paleocoordinates 37.8° N, 111.6° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: Wutu Formation, Early/Lower Eocene (55.8 - 48.6 Ma)

• there is some debate over whether the Wutu Formation is late Paleocene or early Eocene, but most authors accept an early Eocene age

• formation-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; coal

• "coal mine" (Tong et al. 2004)

Size class: macrofossils
