Where: Brazil (32.2° S, 52.2° W: paleocoordinates 32.2° S, 52.2° W)
• coordinate stated in text
• small collection-level geographic resolution
When: Late/Upper Pleistocene (0.1 - 0.0 Ma)
• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: Unknown lithostratigraphic unit. THICKNESS: From drill hole of at least 231 m thick, from 3 m thick unit. AGE: Stated to be Holocene, based of faunal similarity with Uruguan and Argentinian Holocene assemblages, although similarity with Pleistocene of these regions also discussed. Assigned here to Late Pleistocene based of depth in core. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From 108-111 m in drill hole.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified siliciclastic sediments
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: core,
• COLLECTOR: Petrobas Petroleum Company. REPOSITORY: Unknown repository, possibly the School of Geology, National Science Institute, Brazil.
