TitleRodent stratigraphy of some Miocene fissure fillings in Gargano (prov. Foggia, Italy)
JournalScripta Geologica
AbstractA new genus of Muridae, Microtia, is described and three species M. magna, M. parva, and M. maiuscula are ascribed to it. The size and morphology of Microtia molars show a very wide variation which is interpreted as an evolutionary trend, and used to establish an age sequence for a large number of fissure fillings, that show no stratigraphic correlation in the field. This sequence serves as a background for the study of the birds from Gargano by Ballmann.
