Abstract

The palaeontological material stored in the Sardinian Museum of Geology and Paleontology D. Lovisato (Cagliari, Italy) has been recently catalogued. The fossils stored at present are unfortunately only a part of the original museum collection. In fact, numerous fossils have been irreparably damaged or lost due to the several relocations occurred during the Second World War. This is the case of some interesting Miocene fossil reptiles found in the Cagliari area between the second half of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the second half of the twentieth century. At the present, the Museum still hosts the holotype of the crocodilian Tomistoma calaritanum Capellini, 1890 and two turtle carapaces, all found in the marl-sandstone lithofacies of the late Miocene Calcari di Cagliari Formation.
