The Miocene is a geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about Template:Mya (Ma). The Miocene was named by Sir Charles Lyell. Its name comes from the Greek words Template:Lang (Template:Lang, “less”) and Template:Lang (Template:Lang, “new”) and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene. The Miocene follows the Oligocene Epoch and is followed by the Pliocene Epoch. The Miocene is the first epoch of the Neogene Period.
