Where: Poland (51.2° N, 22.6° E: paleocoordinates 49.7° N, 17.7° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Bartonian (41.3 - 38.0 Ma)
• No lithostratigraphic unit given in text or found in literature search. Deposits are however less than 10 m thick, overlain by Quaternary sands. Assigned to Bartonian on the basis of similarity of faunal assemblage to Bartonian of England. Furthermore, analysis of planktonic foraminifers shows the unit to be the Globigerapsis semiinvolute Zone, that is in the lower part of the Upper Eocene, and on the basis of coccoliths to be in the Discoaster nodifer biozone, that is uppermost Middle and lowermost Upper Eocene.
• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: offshore; glauconitic, pebbly sandstone and phosphatic sandstone
Size class: macrofossils
Preservation: original aragonite, original calcite
Collection methods: Macrofauna are housed in the Geological Instiutute (IG) of Poland.
