Locality 81005, Suribachi-zawa (Cretaceous of Japan)

Where: Japan (44.2° N, 142.1° E: paleocoordinates 53.6° N, 135.8° E)

• coordinate estimated from map

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Early/Lower Cenomanian (99.7 - 94.3 Ma)

• Although the exact stratigraphic horizon from which the concretion came is uncertain, judging from its location, it without doubt came from the mudstone of the Member My3 of the "Middle Yezo Group," which can be correlated with the Graysonites adkinsi-G. wooldridgei zone (=lowest Cenomanian).

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: marine; lithified, concretionary mudstone

Size class: macrofossils

Collection methods: Repository: Institute of Geoscience, University of Tsukuba, Tsukuba.
