Glenaulin, sample IV (Miocene to of Australia)

Where: Victoria, Australia (37.9° S, 141.4° E: paleocoordinates 49.5° S, 138.9° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Wataepoolan limestone Formation (Glenelg Group), Miocene to Miocene (23.0 - 23.0 Ma)

• Marls underlying the massive nodular limestone bed 1'-5' above the disconformity. East landslip, Allotment 2, Ph. Glenaulin

Environment/lithology: marine; brown, argillaceous limestone

• This unit overlies unconformably the Glenaulin clay and consists mainly of orange-brown polyzoal limestones with some polyzoal marls and clayey beds. A massive nodular limestone bed near the base of this member contains a large molluscan fauna.

Size class: mesofossils
