Where: West Siberia, Russian Federation (50.0° N, 86.7° E: paleocoordinates 50.0° N, 86.7° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
When: Kedrovsk Formation, Middle Pleistocene (0.8 - 0.1 Ma)
• Although the title of the paper says late Pliocene and Early Pliestocene, in this sequence the base of Pleistocene is taken to be 0.8Ma = Early Middle Pleistocene. So this site is equivalent to the Middle Pleistocene.
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: Material held in the Institute of Geology and Geophysics, Siberian Branch of the USSR Academy of Sciences, Novobirsk (IGG).
