Recent examination of Quaternary stratigraphic sections at the Sidi Abderrahman quarry and at Casablanca (Morocco) resulted in the definition of two episodes: the Harounian stage, a marine transgression equivalent to the Mediterranean Eutyrrhenian; and the pre-Soltanian substage of the Soltanian. The continental pre-Soltanian deposits are post-Harounian and pre-Ouljian, corresponding to the first part of the Alpine Wuermian. The Soltanian, previously correlated with the Mediterranean Grimaldian, actually belongs to the Grimaldian II and cannot be correlated with the European Wuermian formations.
