node minimum age |
The Dhok Pathan Formation is dated by means of detailed field stratigraphic study, including magnetostratigraphy and radiometric dating (Johnson et al., 1985; Barry et al., 2002). These indicate an absolute age in the vicinity of 10.4 Ma, within the Tortonian stage. The upper limit of the Tortonian is 7.246 Ma (Gradstein et al., 2012).
node maximum age |
The soft maximum constraint on this date is taken as the oldest record of Antemurus at 14.0 Ma, correlating with the Langhian stage with a lower bound of 16 Ma.
|primary fossil used to date this node|
Karnimata is identified by phylogenetic analysis as a member of the Rattus-Mus clade within crown Murinae, closer to Rattus than Mus (Jacobs and Flynn, 2005).
