Where: Colombia (11.0° N, 75.0° W: paleocoordinates 10.8° N, 74.2° 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 horizon R.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; poorly lithified siliciclastic sediments
Size class: macrofossils
