Where: Indonesia (1.5° N, 116.5° E: paleocoordinates 1.8° N, 118.0° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Lower Menkrawit Formation, Middle Miocene (16.0 - 11.6 Ma)
• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: Unknown relationship to other units. AGE: Late Miocene according to Skwarko (1994); Middle Miocene based on correlation table of Shuto (1975), which is favored here as it accounts for mollusca and foraminiferal biostratigraphy, rather than historic age assignments.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: COLLECTOR: Presumably K. Martin. REPOSITORY: Natt. Natuurhist. Mus., Leiden and GRDC Coll., Bandung (Indonesia).
