Buckingham Member, Tamiami Formation (unspecified localities) (Pliocene of the United States)

Where: Florida (25.9° N, 81.3° W: paleocoordinates 26.0° N, 80.7° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Buckingham Member (Tamiami Formation), Late/Upper Pliocene (3.6 - 2.6 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Buckingham Mbr of the Tamiami Fm, Okeechobee Grp, which is overlain by the Pinecrest Mbr of the Tamiami Fm, and overlies the Sarasota Mbr of the Murdock Station Fm. Correlative with the Yorktown, Chowan River, Goose Neck, Duplin, and Jackson Bluff Fms. THICKNESS: Varies between 7 and 60 m across areal extent. AGE: Late Pliocene. Based on macrofossil biostratigraphy the unit is throught to represent the early to late Piacenzian. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: Checklist representative of entire member.

• member-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: lagoonal or restricted shallow subtidal; unlithified, phosphatic, sandy limestone

• ENVIRONMENT: carbonate lagoonal/restricted shallow subtidal environment; shallow muddy sand areas and intertidal mud flats, shallow lagoon, deep lagoon, lagoonal coral bioherms.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Chalky limestone that contains little sand and many small grains of phosphorite. LITHIFICATION: Unlithified, based on figured specimens.

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: cast, mold/impression

Collection methods: COLLECTOR: Unknown, presumably the authors and others. REPOSITORY: No repository stated.
