The late Turolian muroid rodent succession in eastern Spain

  title={The late Turolian muroid rodent succession in eastern Spain},
  author={Jordi Agust{\'i} and Manel Llenas},
  journal={Acta Zoologica Cracoviensia},
In this paper we present a review of the muroid succession in the late Turolian basins of Spain. The basins of Fortuna, Mula and Teruel, as well as isolated localities like Almenara-M, are taken into account in this analysis. Five main events, recording the entry of Stephanomys, Parasaidomys, Paraethomys, Protatera and aff. Protatera sp., are recognized. The new genus Parasaidomys is described for the new species P. kowalskii and other populations of large murids that are found in the lowermost… 
Rodents and insectivores from the late Miocene of Romerales (Fortuna Basin, Southern Spain)
Abstract The Neogene Fortuna Basin (Murcia Region, SE Spain) is rich in microvertebrate sites. Its continental sections include localities extended from the middle Turolian (MN12) to the early
The Micromammal Fauna from Negratín-1 (Guadix Basin, Southern Spain): New Evidence of African-Iberian Mammal Exchanges during the Late Miocene
Abstract A rich and diverse micromammal fauna from the late Turolian (MN13) locality of Negratín-1 (Guadix Basin, southern Spain) is described. The faunal list of this site includes Apodemus
The Messinian terrestrial record in the Pyrenees: The case of Can Vilella (Cerdanya Basin)
In this paper, a survey on the Messinian section of Can Vilella, in the intramontane basin of La Cerdanya (Pyrenees) is presented. The mammalian association, composed of insectivores, rodents and
From the paleobiogeographical point of view, the occurrence of the African genus Myosorex constitutes a new striking evidence of the faunal exchange between Eurasia and Africa that took place during the Messinian Salinity Crisis.
The European record of the gerbil Myocricetodon (Rodentia, Mammalia) and its bearing on the Messinian salinity crisis
Abstract The gerbillid Myocricetodon is mainly known from the Miocene of Africa and Asia, but some small samples of this genus have been identified in southwestern Europe, interpreted as immigrants
Messinian rodents from Moncucco Torinese, NW Italy: palaeobiodiversity and biochronology
ABSTRACT The rodents from the Upper Messinian deposits of Moncucco Torinese (MCC) (Piedmont, NW Italy) are described. Stratigraphic considerations indicate that the fossiliferous deposits exposed at
A new early Pliocene murine rodent from the Iberian Peninsula and its biostratigraphic implications
The new species here described represents a key biochronological and biostratigraphic marker, since it is restricted to levels of late early Ruscinian age, and becomes a characteristic taxon for the early Pliocene in the terrestrial record of the Iberian Peninsula.
Late Messinian rodents from Verduno (Piedmont, NW Italy): Biochronological, paleoecological and paleobiogeographic implications §
Abstract The stratigraphic and paleoenvironmental context of the Verduno fossil vertebrate locality is discussed herein based on its rodent record. The Verduno section crops out in the southern part
Early Pliocene continental vertebrate fauna at Puerto de la Cadena (SE Spain) and its bearing on the marine-continental correlation of the Late Neogene of Eastern Betics
In this paper, we synthesize sedimentological, magnetostratigraphic and paleontological data from the continental vertebrate site of Puerto de la Cadena (Murcia, SE Spain), in order to clarify its
The late Neogene-early Quaternary small vertebrate succession from the Almenara-Casablanca karst complex (Castellón, Eastern Spain): Chronologic and paleoclimatic context
Abstract Although discontinuous because of their karst nature, the Almenara-Casablanca complex records a very complete small vertebrate succession (amphibians, squamates, insectivores, bats, rodents
