Also known as NMB Loc. 18667

Where: Panama (9.4° N, 79.8° W: paleocoordinates 9.1° N, 78.5° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: lower Gatun Member (Gatun Formation), Tortonian (11.6 - 7.2 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Gatun Fm, which regionally overlies the Caimito Fm or Mesozoic basement. AGE: Late Miocene. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From middle member of the Gatun Formatio according to the author; the enterer considers this to be the lower member of the Gatun Formation.
