Station 9484 (Pleistocene of Haiti)

Also known as B 115 F

Where: Haiti (18.5° N, 73.2° W: paleocoordinates 18.5° N, 73.1° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pleistocene (2.6 - 0.0 Ma)

• Marine deposits are common along the coast where they form narrow fringes, a few places 1 or 2 km wide. The Quaternary deposits everywhere rest on the underlying formations unconformably. The unconformity is angular as well as erosional, even with the Pliocene and Miocene, but at some places where there are no Pliocene deposits the discordance with the Miocene deposits may be slight.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified, fine-grained, shelly/skeletal, brown sandstone

• No precise environmental information reported in text.
• Fine-grained soft brown sand containing shells of molluscs.

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: quarrying,

• Collected by W.P. Woodring, November 22, 1920

Taxonomic list

• Exhaustive list of Mollusca. Other faunal groups (forams, corals, echinoderms) listed in text if present. Nomenclature antiquated (but should be precise as identified by W.P. Woodring and S.T. Stanton). Identifications of corals by T.W. Vaughan, Echinoderms by R.T. Jackson, and forams by W.P. Woodring.
