Title: Late Pleistocene gastropod and vertebrate fauna from Tokod (NE Transdanubia, Hungary)
Year: 1993

Pages: 89-116.

Abstract: The Late Pleistocene locality, near Tokod (Gerecse Mountains), was dated by the first excavation (1960) as the lower part of the Würm Glaciation (Tokodian faunal sub-stage). During the next collections (in 1990 and 1991) a new profile was designated by the author, and it was separated in two members of deposits, which contained different snail and vertebrate faunas. The snail material includes 46, the vertebrate fauna at least 61 taxa (micro- and macrovertebrates). On the basis of some typically interglacial species among the micromammals, as Crocidura cf. leucodon, Glis glis, Apodemus sp., Pitymys subterraneus, and by comparing the composition of the fauna with faunas from other localities, the age of the lower layers is Varboian (middle and upper part of the Riss-Würm Interglacial) and in the case of the upper layers it is Lower Würm. The present paper comprises the description of the more important species of the fauna and its evaluation from stratigraphical, zoogeographical and climatological aspects.
