TURKEY: Miocene, Serravallian

A lot of nice Miocene shells are to be found near Karaman in Turkey. Every year when the farmers plow their fields lots of fossil shells show up. For identifying the collected shells you can use: Lutfiye Erunal-Erentoz, 1958 " Mollusques du Neogene des Bassins de Karaman, Adana et Hatay (Turquie)", edited in Ankara. This thesis gives a good survey of the shells that comes from these nice Serravallian deposits.
