• coordinate estimated from map
When: Pinczow Formation, Middle Miocene (16.0 - 11.6 Ma)
• Middle Miocene (Badenian)
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; lithified limestone
•the southern slopes of the Swie$okrzyskie Mts. and Lublin Upland, and from the northern Carpathian border. The densilty of sampling was higher where
•limestones with in-plance algal accumulations occur but lower in purely orgainodetrital limestones. Because of the poor expasure the samples were frequently taken from the weathering zone.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
