Also known as Cerithium Limestone (Denmark) fauna
Where: Denmark (57.0° N, 9.7° E: paleocoordinates 50.5° N, 7.2° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Cerithium Limestone Formation, Danian (65.5 - 61.7 Ma)
• Stevns Klint. Cerithium Limestone, cut by hardground. Dated by underlying. Danian Fish Clay (P0 foraminiferal zone). Cerithium Limestone contains P0-P1a foraminiferal zone.
• formation-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: reef, buildup or bioherm; lithified, burrowed, hardground limestone
Size classes: macrofossils, microfossils
Preservation: mold/impression, original aragonite, original calcite, original silica, replaced with calcite
Collection methods: Some bulk samples processed in the field, remeaning material processed in laboratory. Lab preparation involved "drying, weighing and hammering samples into small prieces. Each piece examined under microscope in search of molds."
