The Micro-Mousterian or Micromousterian is a name given by Alfred Rust and Henri Fleisch to a Palaeolithic industry of small stone tools.[1][2][3]

It was found at level five of Ksar Akil in Lebanon.[4] It has also been found in Montenegro, Italy, France, Africa and Syria and is similar to another tiny sized Mousterian industry called the Pontinian.[5]
