Abstract

Monte Tuttavista (Eastern Sardinia, Italy) is one of the major localities for late Neogene- Quaternary fossil vertebrates in Sardinia. In 1995, some fossil remains were found in this area after quarrying activity had led to the discovery of a number of fossiliferous deposits. These remains yielded important information, opening up new perspectives on the biochronology of Sardinian fauna and the palaeobiogeography of the Mediterranean area. The fossil mammals collected in the fissure fillings of this area belongs to, at least, four different assemblages spaning in a period from the Late Pliocene to the Holocene. The following mammal species have been classified till now: Talpa tyrrhenica, “Nesiotites” sp. I, “Nesiotites” sp. II, Myotis cf. M. bechsteini, Macaca aff. M. majori, Tyrrhenoglis cf. T. majori, Tyrrhenoglis cf. T. figariensis, Gerbillidae indet., Microtus (Tyrrhenicola) sondaari, Microtus (Tyrrhenicola) henseli, Rhagapodemus minor, Rhagamys orthodon, Prolagus figaro, Prolagus sardus, Leporidae n. gen. n. sp., Chasmaporthetes melei, Cynotherium sp., Cynotherium sardoum, Mustelidae indet., Mustela cf. M. putorius, Pannonictis sp., Enhydrictis galictoides, Sus sondaari, Praemegaceros aff. P. sardus, Praemegaceros cazioti, Asoletragus gentry, Nesogoral sp. 1 ?aff. Nesogoral meloni, Nesogoral sp. 2, ?Caprinae indet.
