Węże (Pliocene of Poland)

Also known as Weze I

Where: Poland (52.3° N, 22.2° E: paleocoordinates 52.5° N, 21.8° E)

• coordinate based on nearby landmark

• outcrop-level geographic resolution

When: MN 15 (4.2 - 3.2 Ma)

• Assigned to mammalian zone MN 15 (Ref 9172, 1989).

• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution

Environment/lithology: cave; shelly/skeletal breccia

• "bone breccia"

Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils

Collection methods: Mlynarski, 1962, has Weze I and Weze II on the taxonomic list, but only describes Weze I in terms of locality, so it's unclear what the relationship betwen I and II is.
