Dinghuawu (IVPP locality 71080) (Paleocene of China)

Where: Anhui, China (30.8° N, 116.6° E: paleocoordinates 31.6° N, 108.5° E)

• coordinate based on political unit

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Lower Member (Wanghudun Formation), Early/Lower Paleocene (66.0 - 61.7 Ma)

• Primary reference gives age as Late/Upper Paleocene. Brinkman et al (2008) states Middle Paleocene, belonging to lower part of Wanghudun Formation. Whether in Doumu or Wanghudun formations, Missiaen (2011) gives the age of both as Middle Paleocene; Tong et al. (2016) place it in the middle of the Lower Member of the Wanghudun Formation, which is now regarded as Early Paleocene, following Wang et al. (2016)

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported

Size class: macrofossils
