Langhian is the older ICS
ageof the Middle Mioceneepoch. It spans the time between 15.97 ± 0.05 Ma and 13.65 ± 0.05 Ma (million years ago)GeoWhen (2007)] . Defined by M. F. Pareto in 1864, it was originally based on evidence from the Langhearea north of Cevain northern Italy, hence the name. The Langhian is preceded by the Early Miocene Burdigalianand followed by the Middle Miocene Serravallianstage.__TOC__The Langhian is coevalwith:
