Where: Malaysia (5.5° N, 117.0° E: paleocoordinates 5.5° N, 117.1° E)
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Togopi Formation, Pliocene to Pliocene (5.3 - 0.0 Ma)
• STRATIGRAPHIC RELATIONS: From Togopi Fm. Unknown lithostratigraphic relationships. THICKNESS: Unit of unknown thickness. Collections assumed to be from individual beds. AGE: Debated. Cox (1948) suggested a Pliocene, if not Late Miocene age; Nuttall (1961) suggested Quaternary, but possibly Pliocene; Nuttall (1965) suggested a Plio-Pleistocene age. A Pliocene-Pleistocene age is assigned here. STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From unknown position within unit.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: COLLECTOR: Collected by N. S. Haile (c. 1950's). REPOSITORY: Unknown. NB....may well stand for some repository.
