Concud 3 (Miocene of Spain)

Also known as CC3

Where: Aragon, Spain (40.4° N, 2.6° W: paleocoordinates 40.5° N, 3.2° W)

• coordinate stated in text

When: Alfambra Formation, Turolian (8.7 - 5.3 Ma)

• late Miocene, Middle Turolian, MN12.

Environment/lithology: lignite

• 'The fossiliferous lens of 30-50cm thickness is in well bedded white soft marly limestones. It is composed of washed debris of molluscs (mainly opercula), black lignitic clay, plant remains and bone fragments. The lens may have its continuation in the locality of Concud 2/Las Pedrizas, but between these localities there are no exposures to support this assumption.'

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Collection methods: bulk, chemical, sieve,

• Specimens are stored at the Geologisch Instituut, Rijksuniversiteit Utrecht.
