Locality 114 - Lower Menkrawit beds, Kalimantan (Miocene of Indonesia)

Where: Indonesia (1.0° N, 119.0° E: paleocoordinates 1.5° N, 120.5° 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

Environment/lithology: marine

• ENVIRONMENT: Environmental data not reported in text.
• LITHOLOGY: Lithologic and lithification data not reported in text.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: COLLECTOR: Beets. REPOSITORY: Natt. Natuurhist. Mus., Leiden and GRDC Coll., Bandung (Indonesia).
