ABSTRACT. The current evidence confirms the presence of only one species of spiral-horned antelopes, Pontoceros ambiguus, in the Tamanian (late Early Pleistocene) faunal complex of Eastern Europe. The re-study of fossil materials revealed that the horn core from the Tsimbal locality (Sennaya) on the Taman Peninsula (Russia), previously identified as Tragelaphus sp., belongs to an antelope of this species.

KEY WORDS: Pontoceros ambiguus, Tamanian complex, late Early Pleistocene, Eastern Europe.
