Also known as WH Site, “Hall’s Hill”, Hal’s Hill, D-Site Plateau, Riversleigh
Where: Queensland, Australia (19.1° S, 138.7° E: paleocoordinates 34.0° S, 133.4° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
When: Faunal Zone A zone, Carl Creek Limestone Formation, Late/Upper Oligocene (28.4 - 23.0 Ma)
• “White Hunter Site is one of the oldest Riversleigh sites, chronologically between the Wipajiri and Etadunna formations of South Australia on the basis of biostratigraphic correlation (Archer et al. 1989, 1994)” (Muirhead & Wroe, 1998).
•Because the Etadunna Fm. is a South Australian stratigraphic equivalent of the “System A”-aged deposits of Riversleigh, the entry >>?Etadunna<< is replaced by >>Carl Creek Limestone<< (TL).
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported
Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
Reposited in the UQ
