Abstract Aelurodon montanensis, sp. nov. (Carnivora, Canidae, Borophaginae), is described from a new locality, Aelurodon Cut, near Pipestone Springs in Jefferson County, Montana. The new species is a primitive representative of the previously recognized Aelurodon mcgrewi–A. stirtoni clade, one of the most hypercarnivorous, relatively rare clades in the subfamily Borophaginae. It shares with this clade such derived characters as a broadened posterior cingulum of p3, initial development of a… 
Telling time from fossils: a phylogeny‐based approach to chronological ordering of paleobiotas
TLDR
Cladistic biochronologic analysis (CBA) is developed here as a new method for determiningBiochronologic order between paleobiotas based on the phylogenetic relationships of their constituent taxa, adapted from Brooks' parsimony analysis.
Dietary specialization is linked to reduced species durations in North American fossil canids
TLDR
A nonlinear relationship between species duration and degree of carnivory is found: species at either end of the carnivory spectrum tend to have shorter durations than mesocarnivores, and locality coverage shows no relationship with size, diet or duration.
