Tinguiririca Locality Sets 1 & 2 (Oligocene of Chile)

Also known as Termas del Flaco; Locality A and B; Coya-MachalĂ­

Where: Chile (35.0° S, 70.4° W: paleocoordinates 36.9° S, 62.6° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• local area-level geographic resolution

When: La Gloria Member (Abanico Formation), Early/Lower Oligocene (33.9 - 28.4 Ma)

• Flynn et al. (2003) estimate the age to be 31-33 Ma. It forms the basis for a new SALMA, the Tinguirirican. This is temporally equivalent to the "APS" level of the Gran Barranca.

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; fine-grained volcaniclastic sediments

• The Formation possibly represents lahar deposits.

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Preservation: permineralized

Reposited in the FMNH, SGOPV

Collection methods: surface (float), surface (in situ), mechanical,
