Locality 2 southern Lanzarote Island (Pleistocene of Spain)

Where: Spain (28.8° N, 13.8° W: paleocoordinates 28.8° N, 13.8° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Middle Pleistocene (0.8 - 0.1 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From unnamed lithostratigraphic unit. AGE: Anfatian (= mid Pleistocene) Lecointre et al (1967); Zazo et al (2002): no geochronological dates, but probably Pleistocene age because their morphosedimentary features and faunal contents are similar to Pleistocene terraces. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: 35 m beach, base is usually 32 or 33m.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; sandy conglomerate

• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: coarse conglomerate with sandy bands. LITHIFICATION: Not stated, no figured specimens.

Size class: macrofossils
