Comments: Aivaliki, a new fossiliferous locality near Serres (Greece), has yielded an adult and a juvenile mandible of a rhinoceros. The most striking feature of the material from Aivaliki, assigned to Stephanorhinus cf. etruscus, is the small size of the dentition with relative brachydont and unspecialized teeth, especially the molars. The occurrence of small sized transitional rhino populations of the etruscus-group appears to be a characteristic element of some Early Pleistocene faunas across Europe associated probably with the changing climatic conditions. The known Plio-Pleistocene record of fossil rhinoceroses in Greece is briefly reviewed.
