Bodie Creek Head, Falkland Islands (Permian of Falkland Islands (Malvinas))

Where: Falkland Islands (Malvinas) (51.9° S, 59.1° W: paleocoordinates 65.5° S, 45.0° W)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: Praltos Member (Bay of Harbours Formation), Wuchiapingian (259.0 - 254.0 Ma)

• Stated as "Upper Permian" and Tillyard's description implies he is correlating it with the freshwater Upper Permian of Australia. Locality falls within area underlain by Praltos Member of the Bay of Harbours Formation, which is most likely Wuchiapingian in age.

• bed-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithified siliciclastic sediments

Size class: macrofossils

Preservation: mold/impression

Collected by T.G. Halle in 1908
