We re-describe the type material of the tiny African tragulid “Dorcatherium” moruorotensis from the early Miocene of Kenya, and erect the new genus Afrotragulus, the first African Miocene tragulid that does not belong to Dorcatherium. This new taxon is characterized by its elongated and stretched lower molars with a unique morphological dental pattern that strongly contrasts with that of Dorcatherium. We additionally include the former “Dorcatherium” parvum, also a small species from the early… 
Preliminary phylogenetic analysis of the Tragulidae ( Mammalia , Cetartiodactyla , Ruminantia ) from Arrisdrift : implications for the A frican Miocene tragulids
TLDR
It is clear that the Arrisdrift form is a distinct new species that is named ‘ Dorcatherium’ namaquensis .
New records of Dorcatherium guntianum (Tragulidae), stratigraphical framework, and diphyletic origin of Miocene European tragulids
TLDR
The fossils represent one of the earliest European Dorcatherium records and the oldest unequivocal evidence of D. guntianum from Germany, and add support to immigration scenarios that have been linked with the emerging freshwater wetlands, which formed as a result of the regression in the Western Paratethys.
Tragulidae (Artiodactyla, Ruminantia) from the Middle Miocene Chinji Formation of Pakistan
The fossil record of the Siwalik tragulids remains poorly documented. The study of the tragulid material from the Chinji Formation allows the identification of 3 species: Dorcatherium minus,
Dorcatherium naui and pecoran ruminants from the late Middle Miocene Gratkorn locality (Austria)
TLDR
Morphological data from this work in combination with isotopic measurements indicate a niche partitioning for the ruminants from Gratkorn with subcanopy browsing, top canopy browsing and even a certain amount of frugivory (Dorcatherium naui and Micromeryx flourensianus).
First African record of the Miocene Asian mouse-deer Siamotragulus (Mammalia, Ruminantia, Tragulidae): implications for the phylogeny and evolutionary history of the advanced selenodont tragulids
TLDR
It is shown that the genus Siamotragulus was not endemic to Asia as previously thought, and that a highly diverse guild of tragulids, including different members of the advanced selenodont clade, inhabited Africa as early as the Early Miocene (19–20 Ma).
Miocene chevrotains (Mammalia, Artiodactyla, Tragulidae) from Pakistan
ABSTRACT The Miocene tragulid species from Siwalik sediments in Asia have been repeatedly studied since Lydekker erected them in 1876. Here, we describe and interpret new dental material of

ABSTRACT Tragulidae are very rare in the Miocene fossil record of Greece and their known material is quite scarce. Some new remains of them, found in the early/middle Miocene locality Antonios in
Some new remains of Tragulidae (Mammalia: Ruminantia) from the middle Siwaliks of Pakistan.
TLDR
Dental material of two tragulid species Dorcatherium majus and D. minus are presented from the Siwalik Group of Pakistan, where they were collected from the Late Miocene sites of Potwar Plateau.
Biochronological and palaeobiogeographical significance of the earliest Miocene mammal fauna from Northern Vietnam
Current scientific knowledge of Tertiary fossils from south of the Ailao Shan-Red River shear zone is extremely poor, in sharp contrast with the situation nowadays, as the area of Laos and Vietnam is

New remains of primitive ruminants from Thailand: evidence of the early evolution of the Ruminantia in Asia
TLDR
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.

New Data on the Moschidae (Mammalia, Ruminantia) from the Upper Miocene of Spain (MN 10- MN 11)
ABSTRACT New data on the last representatives of the Spanish Miocene Moschidae (Mammalia, Ruminantia) are presented and discussed. A new species of Micromeryx, Micromeryx soriae, is described on
Eocene bunoselenodont Artiodactyla from southern Thailand and the early evolution of Ruminantia in South Asia
TLDR
Dental remains of a new bunoselenodont artiodactyl are described from the late Eocene of Krabi, southern Thailand, adding to the Eocene record of early ruminants and lends support to the hypothesis that the Tragulidae represents one of the first offshoots in the evolutionary history of Ruminantia.
Micromeryx Azanzae Sp. Nov. (Ruminantia: Moschidae) from the Middle-Upper Miocene of Spain, and the First Description of the Cranium of Micromeryx
TLDR
Previously unknown regions of the skeleton described here include the tympanohyal complex and most of the postcranial skeleton, both of which will be of great importance in reconstructing the sequence of character state changes within the Moschidae.
A taxonomic revision of the Tragulus mouse‐deer (Artiodactyla)
The taxonomy of South-East Asian mouse-deer (Tragulus) is complex, and after some 120 years of considerable taxonomic revisions of the genus a clear key is still lacking for the determination of

Reevaluation of some ungulate mammals from the Eocene Pondaung Formation, Myanmar
TLDR
The reevaluate of fossil specimens of ungulate mammals from the uppermost middle Eocene Pondaung Formation (central Myanmar), describing some new materials shows many primitive characteristics among ruminants and lacks any critical derived features referable to any ruminant family.
