Also known as Cementerio de Sant Quirze, San Quirze
Where: Catalonia, Spain (41.6° N, 2.1° E: paleocoordinates 41.8° N, 1.2° E)
• coordinate based on political unit
• local area-level geographic resolution
When: Vallesian (11.6 - 8.7 Ma)
• Lower Vallesian, "biozone 20a"
Environment/lithology: terrestrial; lithology not reported
Size class: macrofossils
Collection methods: Szyndlar & Rage (1999) report a Vipera from "San Quirze" without specific assignment and without giving any further data, except of stratigraphy (MN 7 + 8). Since the present collection contains vertebrates from the Late Miocene (matching MN 7 + 8 quite well) of Sant Quirze, this snake is added to it, although it may come from elsewhere in that area (e.g. PBDB coll. no. 38976).
