A new genus and species of anthropoid primate, Bahinia pondaungensis gen. et sp. nov., is described from the Yashe Kyitchaung locality in the Late Middle Eocene Pondaung Formation (Myanmar). It is…

The lower jaw of a new hominoid from the Late Miocene of Thailand is described, Khoratpithecus piriyai gen. et sp.
A Middle Miocene hominoid from Thailand and orangutan origins
The origin of orangutans has long been debated. Sivapithecus is considered to be the closest ancestor of orangutans because of its facial–palatal similarities, but its dental characteristics and…
A Fossil Lemur from the Oligocene of Pakistan
The discovery of a strepsirrhine fossil with strong cheirogaleid lemur affinities from early Oligocene deposits of the Bugti Hills (Balochistan, Pakistan) represents the earliest record of Lemuriformes, which hence appear to have already diversified outside of Madagascar at least 30 million years ago.
New remains of primitive ruminants from Thailand: evidence of the early evolution of the Ruminantia in Asia
Results of phylogenetic analysis show that tragulids are monophyletic and appear nested within the lophiomerycids, which enhances the hypothesis that ruminants originated in Asia, but it also challenges the taxonomic status oftraguloids within the Ruminantia.

Koratpithecus represents a new lineage of Southeast Asian hominoids, closely related to extant great ape ancestors, and several of its morphological derived characters are shared with the orangutan, indicating sister-group relationship with that extant ape.
A colubrid snake in the late Eocene of Thailand : the oldest known Colubridae (Reptilia, Serpentes)
Up to now, the oldest known colubrid snakes were fossils from the early Oligocene of Western Europe and from the Arabian Peninsula. An indeterminate colubrid has been recently recovered in the late…

Early rhinocerotids (Mammalia: Perissodactyla) from South Asia and a review of the Holarctic Paleogene rhinocerotid record
The earliest rhinocerotids from South Asia are identified on the basis of few dental remains originating from the Late Eocene of Thailand (Wai Lek mine, Krabi Basin) and the Early Oligocene of…
New rodent assemblages from the Eocene Dur At‐Talah escarpment (Sahara of central Libya): systematic, biochronological, and palaeobiogeographical implications
The new rodent assemblages suggest a late middle Eocene age for the Idam ('Bioturhated) deposits of the Dur At-Talah escarpment, and it is clear that haluchimyines and phiomyids have a common ancestry, and that dispersal occurred between Asia and Africa during the middle of the Palaeogene.
