bones rest in their sticky tomb, bones of animals that lived long ago, the ancient populations of the southern plains now covered by the habitats of man where cars spin by upon an asphalt boulevard. 69 P L E I S T O C E N E C E M E T E R Y The asphalt pits at Rancho La Brea, now on Wilshire Boulevard in the city of Los Angeles, are a cemetery of Pleistocene life. These pits are formed by springs of petroleum mixed with gas which bubbles to the surface from deep in the rocks. The fluid spreads out around the vents to form small ponds of tar where animals

region of Argentina… the oldest oryzomyines are limited to a presumed Ensenadan record of Nectomys ( Reig 1987 )…”. Both records of Nectomys referred to Middle Pleistocene deposits, the Tarijan and the Pampean, apparently have the same original source in the unpublished dissertation of Reig (1972) . In fact, Reig (1972 : 100–108) revised the taxonomy of Nectomys , described in full the record from Buenos Aires province and also added a brief minute about a collection of fossil cricetids from Tarija where he reported Nectomys squamipes ( Reig 1972 : 379

, possibly as a result of deforestation and general human population pressure (Hatt 1959 ). The aim of the present work is to investigate the distribution history of Eurasian beavers in the southernmost areas of its Palaearctic distribution with particular attention to Late Pleistocene and Holocene Italy, up to its regional extinction. As also observed by De Grossi Mazzorin (2016 ), the remains of this species in Italy are key to understand the dynamics that led to its extinction in an important part of the southernmost area of its distribution.
