Late Pliocene and Pleistocene small mammal chronology in the Italian peninsula



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
