Where: Brazil (30.2° S, 50.5° W: paleocoordinates 30.2° S, 50.5° W)

• coordinate stated in text

• small collection-level geographic resolution

When: Holocene (0.0 - 0.0 Ma)

• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: Unknown lithostratigraphic unit. THICKNESS: From drill hole of at least 45 m thick, from 3 m thick unit. AGE: Holocene, based of faunal similarity with Uruguan and Argentinian Holocene assemblages. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From 30-33 m in drill hole.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified siliciclastic sediments

• ENVIRONMENT: Shallow siliciclastic marine environment.
• SPECIFIC LITHOLOGY: Unknown lithology, presumably from unlithified siliciclastic facies. LITHIFICATION: Presumably unlithified given age and figured specimens.
