dc.description.abstract In the Gormaig area (Alcoy basin, SE Spain) a number of fossil mammal localities are known, of which only the classic site of Alcoy-Mina, known since the mid-19th century, has yielded remains of macrofauna. In the vicinity of this site are the localities of Alcoy-2C (AL2C) and Alcoy-2D (AL2D), probably representing the levels of Alcoy-Mina. The faunal assemblage allows dating the AL2C and AL2D localities as Early Pliocene (end of the Early Ruscinian or early-late Ruscinian boundary, MN14-MN15). Several taxa (Pliopetaurista and Glis) are thought to have affinities for humid and close biotopes. En el área del Gormaig (cuenca de Alcoy, SE España), se conocen toda una serie de yacimientos de mamíferos fósiles, de los cuales tan sólo la localidad clásica de Alcoy-Mina, conocida desde mediados del siglo XIX, ha aportado restos de macrofauna. En las proximidades de esta localidad se encuentran los yacimientos de Alcoy-2C (AL2C) y Alcoy-2D (AL2D), probablemente representando los niveles fosilíferos de Alcoy-Mina. La asociación faunística encontrada en AL2C y AL2D permite la datación de estas localidades como pertenecientes al Plioceno inferior (fin del Rusciniense inferior o límite Rusciniense inferior-superior, zona MN14-MN15). Varios taxones (Pliopetaurista y Glis) se consideran indicadores de biotopos cerrados de carácter húmedo.
