Torrent de Febulines (Miocene of Spain)

Also known as TF

Where: Spain (41.6° N, 2.0° E: paleocoordinates 41.8° N, 1.3° E)

When: Late/Upper Miocene (11.6 - 5.3 Ma)

• Accordingly, ROS-D6 may correlate to the second half of the late Vallesian, being close in age to Trinxera Nord Autopista (ca. 9.3 Ma) and Torrent de Febulines (ca. 9.1 Ma).

•The age of Can Llobateres 1, la Tarumba 1 and Torrent de Febulines is also well constrained, thanks to combined bio- and magnetostratigraphic data.

• La Tarumba 1 would be slightly younger (ca. 9.6 Ma) and Torrent de Febulines would correspond to the last part of the Vallesian (ca. 9.1 Ma).

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported

Size class: macrofossils

• Torrent de Febulines: IPS28929, two crown fragments of C1; IPS28932, left scapholunar; IPS28904, complete left fifth metatarsal.
