Where: Colombia (10.8° N, 75.0° W: paleocoordinates 10.6° N, 74.3° W)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: Tubará Formation, Early/Lower Pliocene (5.3 - 3.6 Ma)

STRATIGRAPHIC POSITION: From unknown position within section.
• bed-level stratigraphic resolution
Environment/lithology: marine; siliciclastic sediments
Size class: macrofossils
