Vertebrate fossil localities of Early Miocene age are rare in north China in general and in Nei Mongol in particular.Here we report a recently discovered,richly fossiliferous Early Miocene through Late Miocene sequence in central Nei Mongol.The new Aoerban strata from Sonid Zuoqi represent one of the longest exposures in the region,spanning up to 50 m in total thickness,and produce fossils along much of the section with distinct lithologies,resulting in an easily correlated in situ fossil…

New record of a haplocyonine amphicyonid in Early Miocene of Nei Mongol fills a long-suspected geographic hiatus
TLDR
A newly discovered amphicyonid (beardogs) upper molar from the Early Miocene Lower Red Mudstone Member of Aoerban Formation in central Nei Mongol is placed on the record, which fills a large gap in the geographic distribution of the haplocyonines and represents an excursion of this rare subfamily from Europe.

TLDR
This new evidence indicates that large source areas of aeolian dust and energetic winter monsoon winds to transport the material must have existed in the interior of Asia by the early Miocene epoch, at least 14 million years earlier than previously thought.
