Abstract Although the rhinoceros remains have high biochronological significance, they are poorly known or scarcely documented in the uppermost Miocene deposits of Europe. Several specimens collected from the Upper Miocene (around 7.0 Ma, Turolian) deposits of Kávás (Pannonian Basin, Western Hungary), previously determined as Rhinoceros sp., are revised and described in this paper. The postcranial remains of these specimens belong to “Dihoplus” megarhinus (de Christol) on the basis of the… 

Rhinocerotidae from the Late Miocene and Late Pliocene of Macedonia, Greece. A revision of the Neogene-Quaternary Rhinocerotidae of Greece

Rhino fossils have been found in 65 localities in Greece, spanning the biozones MN 5 to MNQ 26. Some specimens represent the first occurrence of their species in Greece (such as Stephanorhinus

Paracamelus (Mammalia, Camelidae) remains from the late Messinian of Italy: insights into the last camels of western Europe

Abstract In this paper we describe fossil remains of an indeterminate species of the genus Paracamelus (Artiodactyla, Camelidae) from the Messinian post-evaporitic deposits (5.55–5.40 Ma) of Verduno

Palaeoenvironment examination of the terminal Miocene hominoid locality of the Zhaotong Basin, southwestern China, based on the rhinocerotid remains

Abstract Anatomic modification in evolution process of mammals was closely correlated with the environmental changes, and become the powerful evidence for reconstructing the palaeoenvironment shaped

A new rhinocerotid (Mammalia, Rhinocerotidae) from the latest Miocene of Southern Italy

The African affinities of the new taxon support the Calabrian-Peloritan arc as a northern extension of the African continental shelf during the late Miocene.

New Pliocene Rhinocerotidae findings from the Iberian Peninsula and the revision of the Spanish Pliocene records

A fragmentary mandible from the early Pliocene of the Vera Basin is here investigated to clarify its taxonomic position. The studied specimen is here assigned to Pliorhinus megarhinus , documented in

Late Miocene sedimentary record of the Danube/Kisalföld Basin: interregional correlation of depositional systems, stratigraphy and structural evolution

Abstract The Danube / Kisalföld Basin is the north-western sub-basin of the Pannonian Basin System. The lithostratigraphic subdivision of the several-km-thick Upper Miocene to Pliocene sedimentary

The latest Miocene small-sized Cervidae from Monticino Quarry (Brisighella, central Italy): paleobiogeographic and biochronological implications

ABSTRACT In this paper, we described the unpublished cervid material from the latest Upper Miocene deposits of the Monticino Quarry (Brisighella, central Italy). The material includes a few teeth,

Messinian Italian Bovidae revised: paleobiogeographic and biochronological implications

ABSTRACT Bovidae from the Messinian localities of Italian Peninsula are poorly known and documented except in the Monticino Quarry record (Brisighella, central Italy), which represents, therefore, a



The Late Miocene Mammal Faunas of the Mytilinii Basin, Samos Island, Greece: New Collection 9. Rhinocerotidae

The recent paleontological expeditions to the late Miocene fossiliferous localities of the Mytilinii Basin on Samos Island, Greece, have unearthed numerous rhinocerotid remains that represent two

Late Miocene horned rhinoceroses (Rhinocerotinae, Mammlia) from Kerassia (Euboea, Greece)

The juvenile skull and an adult mandible from the village of Kerassia are assigned to two different homed rhinoceros species, which means that D. pikermiensis must have preferred temperate forested habitats, whereas the more specialized C. neumayri more open habitats.

The Late Miocene Mammal Faunas of the Mytilinii Basin, Samos Island, Greece: New Collection 10. Chalicotheriidae

In the present study, we describe several postcranial elements of Ancylotherium pentelicum (Chalicotheriidae, Schizotheriinae) from the island of Samos (Greece), some of which are recorded for the

New insight into the Pleistocene deposits of Monte delle Piche, Rome, and remarks on the biochronology of Hippopotamus (Mammalia, Hippopotamidae) and Stephanorhinus etruscus (Mammalia, Rhinocerotidae) in Italy

Several large mammal assemblages have been collected in the Roman basin since the XIX century, but they usually lack any stratigraphic datum or details about the fossiliferous localities. In this

Rhinocerotidae (mammalia) from the Late Miocene of Bulgaria

We describe the remains of Rhinocerotidae from about 10 Late Miocene localities of Bulgaria, the main ones being Kalimantsi and Hadjidimovo, and the newly discovered site of Strumyani. At least seven

Several rhinoceros remains, collected in the Pliocene deposits of Northern Italy and usually ascribed to Dicerorhinus or Rhinocerosmegarhinus, are revised; furthermore, unpublished Pliocene remains


During the late Early Pleistocene (latest Villafranchian-earliest Galerian), a marked faunal turnover occurred in Italy, with a progressive disappearance of Villafranchian species and the gradual
