LAURA ABBAZZI, GIOVANNI FICCARELLI, DANILO TORRE

Abstract


The occurrence in the continental deposits of Aulla quarry of deer characteristic of Early Villafranchian fauna, referred to Procapreolus cusanus and Pseudodama ex gr. pardinensis-lyra, is reported. These finds make questionable the correlation of the sedimentary succession to the Early Pliocene, based on the pollen assemblage.

Keywords
