FGS L-93 - Gulf Hammock [Inglis Limestone] (Eocene of the United States)

Where: Levy County, Florida (29.2° N, 82.7° W: paleocoordinates 29.4° N, 75.1° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Inglis Limestone Formation (Ocala Group), Priabonian (38.0 - 33.9 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From the Inglis Fm of the Ocala Group, which is overlain by the Williston Limestone, and overlies the Avon Park Limestone; originally proposed as Inglis Member of Moodys Branch Fm by Vernon (1951).

STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: Unknown position within formation.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; lithified limestone

• very indurated, cream to tan, hard, dense limestone

Size class: macrofossils

Reposited in the FLMNH

Collection methods: salvage,

• COLLECTOR: Unknown. REPOSITORY: Formerly at Florida Geological Survey; likely now at Florida Museum of Natural History (FLMNH).
