This research provides a synthesis of the studies on the non-marine ostracods recovered from the early infillings (Piacenzian-Gelasian) of the Tiberino Basin. Ostracods were collected from the Fosso Bianco Formation, deposited in a huge and deep lake (Palaeolake Tiberino), and Ponte Naja Fm. that represents alluvial fan deposits that prograded into the lake. The studied ostracods are referable to 23 species, including 8 endemic species. They group in separate assemblages referable to several ecological niches, suggesting a complex lacustrine environment. This contribution permits to enlarge the dataset of non-marine ostracods distribution in central Italy during the Plio-Pleistocene.
