DV 484-6 [Pisco/Chilcatay Fm] (Miocene to of Peru)

Where: Peru (14.6° S, 75.7° W: paleocoordinates 15.4° S, 71.8° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pisco Formation, Early/Lower Miocene to Early/Lower Miocene (23.0 - 11.6 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From either the Pisco or Chilcatay Fm. AGE: Stated in text to be of late Early Miocene to early Middle Miocene age. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From unknown position within section.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; lithified siliciclastic sediments

• ENVIRONMENT: Not discussed in text, but appears to be from relatively shallow marine siliciclastic setting. High productivity, but also warmer than at the present day in the Peruvian upwelling zone.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Not stated in text, but presumably siliciclastic. LITHIFICATION: Lithified based on figured specimens and taphonomy.

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: cast, mold/impression
