Butley River cliff, Gedgrave, 1.25-1.45 m below top (Pliocene of the United Kingdom)

Where: United Kingdom (52.1° N, 1.5° E: paleocoordinates 52.2° N, 1.1° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Coralline Crag Formation, Zanclean (5.3 - 3.6 Ma)

• It has been correlated with, but probably predates at 4.4 to 3.8 Ma, the Luchtbal Sand Member of the Lillo Formation in the Antwerp area on the basis of molluscs (Cambridge, 1977), foraminifera (Jenkins and Houghton, 1987) and dinoflagellate cysts (Louwye et al., 2004; De Schepper et al., 2009), placing it in the latter part of the early Pliocene (Zanclean 2) of the southern North Sea.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: open shallow subtidal; poorly lithified, shelly/skeletal packstone

Size class: macrofossils
