Sunei Sepinang, Pulu Balang, Borneo - Beets (1947) (Miocene of Indonesia)

Also known as Pulu Balang, E. Borneo

Where: Borneo, Indonesia (1.1° S, 116.7° E: paleocoordinates 1.1° S, 117.4° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Pulubalang Group, Late/Upper Miocene (11.6 - 5.3 Ma)

• Difficult to fix the age precisely, considering the stratigrahic range of the species. Cannot give the fauna a more definate position than the one which may be indicated as equal to the Javanese West Progo- or Rembang series. The locality of the Pulu Balang fauna is probably in the Pulubalang series should have an upper Miocene age.
