Country: Turkey

Coordinate: 40° 54' N, 26° 54' E
Basis of coordinate: based on nearby landmark
Geography comments: "just west of the village of Ahmetpasa" apparently very close to Malkara (basis of coordinate)
presumably MP25 based on the age of Kocayarma (i.e., roughly 28 Ma)
the entire formation was "deposited during some one to two million years"
Climate and habitat
Substrate: ground surface
Habitat comments: "from material taken from the dump of a lignite mine" (lithology unclear)
Life forms: rodents
Sampling methods: screenwash
Sample size: 32
Sampling comments: "The mesh of the finest sieve used is 0.5 mm...The approximate weight of the matrix washed" was "900 kg"
"The insectivores which occur associated with the rodents will not be dealt with in this paper"
