Where: Shanxi, China (38.4° N, 111.9° E: paleocoordinates 38.3° N, 111.2° E)
• coordinate based on political unit
When: Ruscinian (5.3 - 3.2 Ma)
• ?Late Early Pliocene, MN15, Zanclean, Jinglean. Directly correlated with Teilhard de Chardin's Yushe Zone II'. Actual date is controversial and hinges on the presence of an Elephas tooth excavated in 1986, this is anomalous in comparison with the rest of the fauna and a similar dated site (Gaozhuang). May be transitional between Gaozhuang and Youhe.
Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
Collection methods: Second excvation in 1986.
