An updated stratigraphic framework is here presented, based on the European small mammal biozonation.The Early Villanyian is characterized by Mimomys hassiacus, M. stehlini and, later, poorly documented M. polonicus; the Late Villanyian by M. pliocaenicus, M. pitymyoides and M. tigliensis; the older part of the Early Biharian by Microtus (Allophaiomys) ex gr. pliocaenicus, Mimomys pusillus, M. cf. ostramosensis and M. tornensis; the later part of the Early Biharian by advanced Microtus (Allophaiomys) species, Mimomys pusillus or M. blanci; the Late Biharian by M. savini, Microtus hintoni-gregaloides, Microtus (Iberomys) ex gr. huescarensis-brecciensis and Terricola arvalidens; the Early Toringian by Arvicola mosbachensis, Allocricetus bursae, Pliomys episcopalis; the Tate Toringian by A. terrestris in diversified associations. The most important faunal events are calibrated by inependent chronological controls
