The following taxa are reported: Microtus (Tyrrhenicola) henseli, Rhagamys orthodon, Prolagus sardus, Asoriculus sp., Cynotherium sardous and Praemegaceros (Nesoleipoceros) cazioti. The assemblage (“Microtus (Tyrrhenicola)” Faunal Complex, Dragonara Faunal Subcomplex) infers a Late Pleistocene age and represents the richest deposit of Quaternary mammals reported in the central Campidano area.
