Where: Italy (38.2° N, 15.6° E: paleocoordinates 38.2° N, 15.6° E)

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Gelasian (2.6 - 1.8 Ma)

• "Pliocene by analogy with the facies observed on the Sicilian side of the strait." If that is the case, then the locality is presumably Gelasian.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
