    The Pliocene to early Middle Pleistocene bear fauna in Europe can be divided into four main morphophyletic groups. All the known Pliocene bears belong to Ursus ex gr. minimus-thibetanus. They represent at least two migration events (MN 14–MN 15a and MN 15b–MN 16b). Representatives of this group were recorded also in the late MN 17 and in the Lower to Middle Toringian. Ursus ex gr. etruscus are present since the early MN 17 and they survived until the Early Biharian. The Early Biharian U. etruscus most likely represents a blind lineage in Europe. The oldest representatives of Ursus ex gr. arctos are known from the late Early Biharian localities, about 1.1 Ma ago (their possible earlier presence – e.g. DA2C1 or Ceyssaguet – require confirmation). The first occurrence of U. deningeri, the oldest taxon in U. ex gr. deningeri-spelaeus, was recorded approximately at the same time.
