Stratigraphy comments: "On the basis of paleontologic material the fossiliferous bed ins ranged to the late Villafranchian, i.e. to the initial Quaternary phase (pre-Danubian). According to the authors, the older, partly redeposited secondary faunal elements of the Plio-Pleistocene type were locally transported from the close vicinity (from older sedimentary beds). The mixed fauna represents the Villafranchian type..."
