Simplomys, a dormouse with a simple dental morphology compared to other glirids, shows a continuous evolution in Spain during the end of the Ramblian and up to the middle Aragonian, the stratigraphic frame considered in this work. In contrast, the record of the genus in Central Europe is reduced to a few localities spanning from the early to the middle Miocene. We review the record from the...

Geological surveys were carried out in the Miocene deposits at the place known as “En Solé” east of the village Courrendlin (Delémont Basin, Canton of Jura, Switzerland). This resulted in the discovery of new Miocene small mammal assemblages. The association of the rodents Megacricetodon aff. collongensis and Melissiodon sp. allows to biochronostratigraphically correlate for the first...

Aim. To analyse the marine influences of the Rhenish sea in the distal part of the Swiss Molasse Basin (Jura Molasse) during the Early Oligocene, in order to reconstruct the palaeoenvironmental and the palaeogeographical evolution.Location and geological setting. In the Jura Molasse, the Rhenish sea deposits are mainly preserved in three sedimentary basins: Laufen, Delémont and Ajoie. They...
