Neustift granite quarry (Miocene of Germany)

Where: Germany (48.6° N, 13.2° E: paleocoordinates 48.8° N, 11.5° E)

• coordinate stated in text

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Burdigalian (20.4 - 16.0 Ma)

• Late Burdigalian. Papp & Steininger (1973) suggested an Early Ottnangian age for the sediments based on the occurrence of Pecten herrmannseni. This species, however, can be traced throughout the entire Ottnangian (Mandic & Steininger 2003, Mandic 2007). According to Hagn et al. (1981) and Wenger (1987), the benthic foraminifer fauna of the basal strata at Neustift suggests a Middle Ottnangian age.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: shoreface; poorly lithified sandstone

• Shallow marine, high-energy deposits, which in part formed directly at the beach or slightly below.
• Poorly lithified based on fossil preservation

Size class: macrofossils

Reposited in the BSP
