E. Koskeridou, Molluscan assemblages in a highly variable setting in littoral bottoms of the Lower Pleistocene of Rhodes (Greece)., Δελτίο της Ελληνικής Γεωλογικής Εταιρείας, 47|2013, 178-183

Highly diverse and well preserved marine mollusc associations from a sandy horizon of the Lower Pleistocene shallow water deposits of Rhodes island are here presented. Four significantly different molluscan assemblages characterize neighboring environments and document a variety of niches provided by the lateral change of bottom type. Molluscs of hard substrate to sandy seabed of the Infralittoral Zone were documented. A total of 55 molluscan species were identified. Gastropods dominate with 29 species. For the first time, the Ervilia castanea assemblage is described for the Lower Pleistocene of Greece.
