Also known as Newfoundland Loc. 32
Where: Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada (48.4° N, 58.9° W: paleocoordinates 48.4° N, 58.9° W)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Holocene (0.0 - 0.0 Ma)
• LITHOSTRATIGRAPHY: No lithostratigraphic unit reported in text. From emergent features along coast increasng in elevation to 250 ft above sea level. AGE: Late Wisconsin (Richards 1940). Coleman (1926) favored multiple glacial events, although MacClintock and Twenhofel (1940) and Richards (1940) indicate that deposits in Newfoundland are isochronous.
• group of beds-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: coastal; unlithified siliciclastic sediments
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: COLLECTORS: Collected by R.F. Flint, P. MacClintock, H. Johnson, A.K. Snelgrove, J. Wheeler, and others. Based on checklists of Richards (1940). REPOSITORIES: Collections held in various museums, possibly including the Academy of Natural Sciences, USNM, MCZ (Cambridge), and AMNH.
