CAS Loc. 304, Santa Rosa, 4 mi. E of [Tubará Fm] (Pliocene of Colombia)

Where: Bolívar, Colombia (10.5° N, 75.3° W: paleocoordinates 10.3° N, 74.6° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Tubará Formation, Early/Lower Pliocene (5.3 - 3.6 Ma)

• LITHOSTRATIGRAPHY: From the Tubará Formation, which overlies the Las Pedices Group (Early Miocene), and is overlain by the Galapa Group (Late Miocene). AGE: Early Miocene, according Barrios (1960), but assigned by the enterer to the Early Pliocene based on more recent biostratigraphic correlations. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From unknown position within section.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; poorly lithified siliciclastic sediments

• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Not stated in text, but apparently siliciclastic. LITHIFICATION: Poorly-lithified-unlithified, on the basis of figured specimens.

Size class: macrofossils
