Teggiano village (Cretaceous to of Italy)

Where: Salerno , Italy (40.4° N, 15.5° E: paleocoordinates 26.6° N, 14.9° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Late/Upper Campanian to Late/Upper Campanian (83.5 - 66.0 Ma)

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: perireef or subreef; lithified rudstone

• Isolate outcrop made of massive and clinostratified biointraclastic limestone at least 100 m-thick of the "Calcari pseudosaccaroidi". Composed of fine to coarse clastic carbonates and bioclastic debris, largely composed of benthic organisms and subordinate carbonate lithoclasts. In the Upper Cretaceous part of the succession, the bioclastic fraction is mainly composed of rudist fragments embedded in a grain-supported texture.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
