Abstract:

The fauna and sedimentology of the locality Nová Vieska (Villafranchian, SR)

The presented paper summarizes informations from the recent palaeontological and sedimentological research at the locality of Nová Vieska (Slovak Republic). Sedimentological data refer to sedimentation in the conditions of a relatively great braided river. The assemblage of large mammal fauna from the locality is a typical example of the transitional fauna at the time of “Mammuthus-Equus” event, 2,6 milions years ago. Characteristic taxa from the locality are Mammut borsoni, Anancus arvernensis, Mammuthus meridionalis, Stephanorhinus jeanvireti, Stephanorhinus etruscus etruscus, Eucladoceros sp., Metacervoceros rhenanus, ?Croizetoceros sp., and Sus strozzii. The fossil material of Stephanorhinus megarhinus from older time period is most likely redeposited.
