Ammonite Unit Cenomanian 1, Sergipe Basin (Cretaceous of Brazil)

Where: Brazil (10.8° S, 37.1° W: paleocoordinates 17.4° S, 11.4° W)

• coordinate estimated from map

• basin-level geographic resolution

When: Cotinguiba Formation, Early/Lower Cenomanian (99.6 - 93.5 Ma)

• some occurences could also be from the Riachuleo Fm, here from the Maruim and Aguilhada member, as they may locally extend into the Cenomanian

Environment/lithology: open shallow subtidal; limestone

• flaggy limestones (Sapucari facies (Bender, 1959) here replaced with the term Pindoba facies). Laminated thin bedded rocks, where the individual beds are generally separated by clayey or marly layers, and the rocks commonly appear as flaggy limestones.

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: cast

Collection methods: A total of 604 localities in the Segripe Basin has been sampled, though the occurences can't be assigend to a specific locality
