Three dental fragments and an incomplete first caudal vertebra are shortly described. They were collected from an artificially formed lake, formed by a suction-dredger, from a depth of some 20 m, in sand and gravel deposits of the Weichselian Kreftenheye Formation. One molar fragment is identified as Elephas antiquus; its age is 32.500 yBP, a remarkably late dating. The caudal vertebra may also belong to the same species.
