• coordinate based on nearby landmark
When: Middle Pleistocene to Middle Pleistocene (0.8 - 0.0 Ma)
• Middle-Late Pleistocene. A new faunal complex subdivided into primitive (earlier) 'Praemegaceros-Tyrrhenicola' complex and a later one. This is the earlier and comprises the following fissures - XI canide, XI dic.2001, XI Mar 2002, XI 3, XI rondone. IX Prolagus, XI 3, IV 5 and IV 20 appear to form a slightly earlier subgroup.
Environment/lithology: fissure fill
Size classes: macrofossils, mesofossils
Collection methods: bulk, sieve,
• Specimens are held at the Operating Office of the Soprintendenza per Beni Archeologici in Nuoro and in the Archaeological Museum of Nuoro.
•Localities found in 1995, this paper (ref. 13691) reports on work from 1996-2003.
