Limnopithecus is a small-bodied catarrhine genus that is widespread throughout early Miocene sites in East Africa. Although two species of this genus have been described - Limnopithecus legetet (type species) and Limnopithecus evansi - they are poorly known anatomically and their systematic positions remain unresolved. Here, we provide detailed descriptions and comparisons for two well-preserved maxillary specimens that we attribute to L. evansi. These specimens come from the type locality of… CONTINUE READING
