Where: Italy (38.0° N, 15.7° E: paleocoordinates 37.9° N, 15.7° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Calabrian (1.8 - 0.8 Ma)

• "Early Pleistocene", so presumably Calabrian because Gelasian was formerly included in Pliocene.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: basinal (); lithified, shelly/skeletal limestone

• Bathyal localities
• Presumably a calcarenite like other localities, and also assumed to be lithified based on coeval locations in Calabria.

Size class: macrofossils
