Sudbourn (Bowerbank collection) (Pliocene of the United Kingdom)

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

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• 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: coastal; unlithified siliciclastic sediments

Size class: macrofossils

Collected by Bowerbank; reposited in the BMNH
