Biostratigraphic distribution

Geological Range:
Last occurrence (top): in lower part of PT1b subzone (30% up, 0.4Ma, in "Holocene" stage). Data source: Aze et al. 2011 - extinct, proportion up approximated.
First occurrence (base): near top of PT1a subzone (89% up, 0.7Ma, in Gelasian stage). Data source: Wade et al. (2011), additional event; position within zone determined by linear interpolation from data in table 1 of Wade et al. (2011).
