A diverse new primate fauna from middle Eocene fissure-fillings in southeastern China
We report the discovery of a fauna of primates from Eocene (˜45 Myr) deposits in China having a diversity greater than in European and North American localities of similar antiquity. From the many

TLDR
This review highlights the importance of knowing the carrier and removal status of canine coronavirus, as a source of infection for other animals, not necessarily belonging to the same family.
A semi-aquatic Arctic mammalian carnivore from the Miocene epoch and origin of Pinnipedia
TLDR
The discovery of a nearly complete skeleton of a new semi-aquatic carnivore from an early Miocene lake deposit in Nunavut, Canada that represents a morphological link in early pinniped evolution suggests that the evolution of pinnipeds included a freshwater transitional phase, and may support the hypothesis that the Arctic was an early centre of pinnacleiped evolution.
Intercontinental dispersal of Holarctic land mammals near the Paleocene/Eocene boundary; paleogeographic, paleoclimatic and biostratigraphic implications
The reorganization of North American and European mammalian faunas across the Paleocene/Eocene boundary is attributed to intercontinental dispersal of higher-level taxa that originated in Asia.
NEW LATE PALEOCENE RODENTS (MAMMALIA) FROM BIG MULTI QUARRY, WASHAKIE BASIN, WYOMING
Les plus anciens rongeurs d'Amerique du Nord se trouvent dans les couches clarkforkiennes basales de la Formation Fort Union, dans la Big Multi Quarry pres de Bitter Creek, au nord du Bassin de
Early Wasatchian Mammals of the Red Hot Local Fauna, Uppermost Tuscahoma Formation, Lauderdale County, Mississippi
TLDR
Several lines of evidence suggest that the Red Hot local fauna correlates with earliest Wasatchian (Wa-M) faunas from the Bighorn Basin of Wyoming, consistent with evidence for substantive differences in the physical environment and flora.
Earliest Complete Dentition of an Anthropoid Primate from the Late Middle Eocene of Shanxi Province, China
TLDR
The complete lower dentition of a new species of the basal anthropoid genus Eosimias shows a combination of primitive and derived traits unknown in other living or fossil primates, supporting the anthropoid affinities of Eosimiidae.
Laonastes and the "Lazarus Effect" in Recent Mammals
TLDR
It is shown that Laonastes is actually a surviving member of the otherwise extinct rodent family Diatomyidae, known from early Oligocene to late Miocene sites in Pakistan, India, Thailand, China, and Japan.
CRANIAL ANATOMY AND RELATIONSHIPS OF A NEW CTENODACTYLOID (MAMMALIA, RODENTIA) FROM THE EARLY EOCENE OF HUBEI PROVINCE, CHINA
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based on characters of the skull, mandible, and dentition supports the concept of two clades within the ingroups, one composed of Eocene paramyids, sciuravids, and theridomyids and the other composed of Bandaomys, Exmus, Cocomys), Tamquammys, Advenimus, and Yuomys as stem taxa to ctenodactylids and hystricognaths.
