A historical survey of the increase of the list of Tegelen mammals precedes the description of some fossils, namely a scapula, a few upper and one lower molar, a humeral shaft and part of a horn-core of Leptobos cf. elatus (Pomel),, fragments of an upper and a lower last milk molar and a large fragment of a second molar of Archidiskodon meridionalis, archaic form, some upper and lower teeth of Macaca florentina, and the young, almost complete lower dentition of Sus strozzii. A comparison of the Tegelen mammals with other Villafranchian faunas leads to the conclusion that the resemblance to the mammalian assemblages of Val d'Arno superiore and of Senèze is great, and that the Tegelen Clay is a deposit of the Günzian period, and thus distinctly older than the Cromer Forest-Bed which has been formed in the Günz-Mindel Interglacial. The Tegelen mammalian fauna belongs to the Upper-Villafranchian, and most probably lived in the Günz-Interstadial.
