A substantial cave system, situated at the eastern foothills of the Wester-wald Mountains (Hessia, Germany), was first opened in 1993 by limestone quarrying. The system is structured into 4 karst niveaus, which are regarded as representing stages of cyclic karst formation. All niveaus are presently in the vadose state. Clastic sediments filling fossil voids have yielded two rich Pleistocene vertebrate taphocoenosis. Most specimens are identified as belonging to Ursus spelaeus (Rosenmueller 1794). The significance of the accumulations lies in the preservation of an undisturbed surface taphocoenosis which probably has not been disturbed since the upper Pleistocene. The site is recently being investigated by an international working group. The research program has the character of a pilot study, introducing non contact methods into cave palaeontology.
