TU 1397 - Quebrada Camarones (Pliocene of Ecuador)

Also known as CRB 284; P-100; LACMIP locality 16944

Where: Ecuador (1.0° N, 79.6° W: paleocoordinates 0.8° N, 78.8° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Esmeraldas Member (Onzole Formation), Early/Lower Pliocene (5.3 - 3.6 Ma)

• Esmeraldas beds, upper Onzole Formation.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: deep-water; poorly lithified, tuffaceous, calcareous shale

• Shallow-water gravity-flows, which brought the Esmeraldas fauna into the deep water (1000 m) from shallow water, on the order of 75 m.
• Highly foraminiferal, tuffaceous shales.

Size class: macrofossils

Reposited in the BMNH, USNM

Collection methods: quarrying,

• Collections reposited in the BMNH, USNM, and Tulane University. Collections BMNH by C.R. Bristow have loc.# CRB 284
