Tingamarra/Murgon (was: Re: Dinosaurs survived in Antarctica?)
Yup they're one and the same.
Tingamarra is the name of the property - Murgon is the name of the
township. Until very recently was considered to be Eocene before clay
containing fossils from the site was radiometrically dated to at least
55 million years (Late Paleocene)
see Long, Archer, Flannery & Hand 2002, Prehistoric Mammals of
Australia & New Guinea.

I be correct in assuming this is aka Murgon in Queensland, home of a
eutherian named Tingamarra porterorum? I've got that noted as Lower
though I'll happily accept Paleocene too.
