Paleocene

PalaeoceneLate PaleocenePaleocene epoch
The Selandian is in the geologic timescale an age or stage in the Paleocene.
It is divided into three ages: the Danian spanning 66 to 61.6 million years ago (mya), the Selandian spanning 61.6 to 59.2 mya, and the Thanetian spanning 59.2 to 56 mya.

Thanetian

Late PaleoceneLandenianMP 6
It is preceded by the Danian and followed by the Thanetian.
The Thanetian is preceded by the Selandian age and followed by the Ypresian age (part of the Eocene).

Tiffanian

late TiffanianTiffanian North American Stage
The Selandian stage overlaps with the lower part of the Tiffanian North American Land Mammal Age, the Peligran, Tiupampan and lower Itaboraian South American Land Mammal Ages and part of the Nongshanian Asian Land Mammal Age.
It is usually considered to overlap the Selandian and Thanetian within the Paleocene.
