Hipparion fauna is of major importance for dating the Neogene fossil-bearing sediments. There are a number of sites with Hipparion fauna in the Southern Caucasus. Out of them only two are dated as Upper Sarmatian: Eldari (Azerbaijan) and Iaghludja (Georgia). Fossil bearing Sarmatian sediments were recently found in Kaspi district, Georgia. Fossil fauna is not diverse, however, key taxa undoubtedly date this site as Late Sarmatian. © 2012 Bull. Georg. Natl. Acad. Sci.
