    I regret that in Fig. Suppl. 1b the authors did not extend the distribution of the Cave Bear 'Ursus spelaeus' until the Iberian Peninsula, where the westernmost site were found (Eirós, Triacastela, Lugo). All the Cantabrian mountains in the N of the Iberian Peninsula are full of caves with cave bear remains; the southernhmost cave with this species is El Reguerillo, in Patones (Madrid).There are also several sites in the mediterranean coast (Such as El Toll, in Moià, Barcelona).
