Where: Piedmont, Italy (44.9° N, 8.0° E: paleocoordinates 44.8° N, 8.0° E)
• coordinate based on nearby landmark
When: MN 16 (3.2 - 2.6 Ma)
• Villanyian, Late Pliocene. Not stated which unit the micromammals from RDB come from (macromammals come from Unit B).
Size class: mesofossils
Collection methods: Possibly a subset of PBD 27023. Not sure whether the microfauna and plant remains come from the same deposit - both say fluvio-lacustrine.
