Abstract

At Capo Mannu, in the northern part of the Sinis Peninsula (western Sardinia), a stratigraphic succession think more than 80 m, overlying with a possible erosion unconformity the Middle Miocene-Messinian sequence, attests a regressive phase evolving from marine-littoral to continental dunar deposits, which are intercalated by locally fossiliferous palaeosoils. Fossil vertebrates have been retrieved from a small cliff cropping out next to the sea shore at Mandriola and from the main Capo Mannu cliff. The following mammals have been collected in this locality (Capo Mannu D1): Erinaceidae indet., Talpidae indet., Parasorex sp., Soricidae indet., Rhinolophus sp., Vespertilionidae indet., Tyrrhenoglis aff. T. figariensis, Rhagapodemus azzarolii, Apodemus mannu, Prolagus aff. P. figaro, Leporidae indet., Sus aff. S. sondaari, Nesogoral sp.
