Where: Euboea, Greece (38.9° N, 23.3° E: paleocoordinates 38.6° N, 23.0° E)
• coordinate estimated from map
• outcrop-level geographic resolution
When: MN 12 mammal zone, Late/Upper Miocene (11.6 - 5.3 Ma)
• Combining the above given data, an MN12 age is plausible for the fauna of Kerassiá, although MN11 cannot be rejected. A biochronological distinction of the two fossiliferous levels found in Kerassiá is not possible for the moment.
Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithified, silty, conglomeratic sandstone and gray, white siltstone
•K6 is isolated and poor in material, but it possibly correlates with K1, because of the presence of a thin grey-white marly layer above the fossiliferous layer.
Size class: macrofossils
