Abstract

Persististrombus latus is the most iconic representative of the "Senegalese fauna", a fossil assemblage of tropical water organisms thought to have colonized the Mediterranean Sea during the last interglacial. As such, P. latus has become an important stratigraphic marker of Marine Isotope Stage (MIS) 5.5, allowing the correlation of raised coastal deposits used in studies of sea level variations and tectonic uplift. This paper reports the finding of several new specimens of P. latus near Isola di Capo Rizzuto, in deposits that had been independently assigned to MIS 5.5, and two specimens from the Capo Colonna terrace, which is thought to correlate with MIS 5.3 or 5.1. The Crotone peninsula, therefore, represents one of the few localities in Italy where multiple stratigraphically distinct P. latus-bearing units can be observed. - (NF)
