CSUN Loc. 1567 - Garrard Creek [Crescent/McIntosh Fm transition] (Eocene of the United States)

Where: Lewis County, Washington (46.8° N, 123.3° W: paleocoordinates 47.7° N, 109.8° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Bartonian (41.3 - 38.0 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: Transition zone of interbedded volcanic and sedimentary rocks between the upper Crescent Formation and the overlying lower member of Mcintosh Formation (as used in the emended sense of Pease & Hoover, 1957). AGE: Middle Eocene; placed by enterer into younger of two Middle Eocene stages on the basis of stratigraphic position. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: Localities are about 2 m apart, in ascending stratigraphic order, in a 17-m-thick section.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; poorly lithified, pebbly mudstone

• ENVIRONMENT: The depositional environment is interpreted to have been on the flank of an oceanic volcanic island in outer shelf to upper slope (bathyal) muds subject to the influx of shells of nearshore and shallow-marine megainvertebrates and pebbly basalt debris.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Pebbly mudstones. LITHIFICATION: Poorly lithified, on the basis of figured specimens.

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by Goedert, Goedert; reposited in the LACM

Collection methods: bulk, surface (float), surface (in situ),

• COLLECTORS: J. Goedert, G. Goedert. REPOSITORY: Los Angeles County Museum of Natural History (LACM).
