SKGS-72, Philippines - Tshuto (1969) (Pliocene of Philippines)

Also known as SKGS-72

Where: Panay, Philippines (11.0° N, 122.5° E: paleocoordinates 11.0° N, 122.5° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Ulian Formation, Late/Upper Pliocene (3.6 - 2.6 Ma)

• Stratigraphically in the upper part of the Ulian Formation. Pliocene, possibly late Pliocene in age. The molluscan assemblage is som small that an accurate age assessment cannot be expected.

• Alternation of gray muds and fine and medium sands and fossils are yielded in the mud beds.

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: original aragonite

Collection methods: quarrying,

• All material studied and registered are stored at the Paleontological Laboratory, Department of Geology, Kyushu University
