Title: Lower Pleistocene vertebrate faunas from the localities 16 and 17 of Beremend (Southern Hungary)
Year: 1996
Volume: 18
Pages: 91-102.

Abstract: A summary is given about the fauna of the Locality 16(17) of the great quarry system of Beremend, outstanding in the classical faunal series of the Villány Mountains. The vertebrate fauna consists of several thousand bones belonging to more than one hundred species. The bird fauna is the richest in the series of the Lower Pleistocene ones of Hungary. The bats, due to their large number of species as individuals, give a whole picture of the environment and age, first time in the Villány Mountains. Other small mammal species make possible an exact stratigraphical evaluation of the fauna (characterized by Mimomys savini together with Allophaiomys pliocaenicus). Last but not least, very complete skeletal remains of large carnivore mammals and ungulates enrich the picture of this colourful vertebrate fauna.
