Abstract

Key-words: Anoplotherium - Geochelone - Ludian levels - Correlations.

A mammal (Anoplotherium cf. commune) and a land tortoise (Geochelone [s. gen.] sp.) from the Ludian (Uppermost Eocene) locality of Côja have been identified. Age can be more accurately established now, from level 3 to level 5 in the Ludian stage, probably 4. Relationships between Côja's feldspathic sands, a correlative unit «Arenitos de Vale Furado», and the paroxysmal phase of Pyrenean orogeny are confirmed.
