The description of a new genus (Apeomyoides) of eomyid rodent from the Miocene of Nevada increases the diversity of known taxa, enhances the geographic range, and extends the biochronology for the Apeomyinae (Eomyidae). Three groups of Eomyidae are known from the fossil record of North America. Of the three groups, Neogene taxa include four genera representing the Eomyinae and two genera representing the Apeomyinae; no genera of the subfamily Yoderi− myinae are known from the Neogene of the… Expand

The Eomyidae is an extinct family of small to mediumsized rodents, which are presumed to be phylogenetically close to geomyoid rodents (gophers, kangaroo rats) based on shared cranial charactersExpand
Large apeomyine rodents (Mammalia, Eomyidae) from the early Miocene of Echzell, Germany

A new species of the genus Megapeomys (Mammalia, Rodentia, Eomyidae) from the Early Miocene of Japan
In 1998, a large, peculiar eomyid rodent Megapeomys was described from the Czech Republic. An isolated lower molar found in Japan was identified as a species of the same genus. Direct comparison ofExpand
Middle Miocene carnivorans from the Monarch Mill Formation, Nevada

New Rodent Material from the John Day Formation (Arikareean, Middle Oligocene to Early Miocene) of Oregon
Twenty one species of rodents are described, based on new discoveries and previously unpublished specimens from the John Day Formation of Oregon, which allows better reconstruction of past ecosystems and is vital for understanding how faunas have changed through time in the region. Expand
Productive wet-screen-sieved microvertebrate sites are notably rare from nearly all of the middle Eocene through late Miocene strata within the John Day Basin. However, recent work from atypicalExpand

Eomyidae (Rodentia: Mammalia) from the Oligocene of Nei Mongol, China
ABSTRACT Until now there have been no definitive reports of eomyid rodents in the Tertiary of Asia, although their discovery there has long been expected. Four forms of eomyid rodents (EomysExpand
Small mammals from the early and medial Hemphillian of Texas, with descriptions of a new bat and gopher
Comparisons of both large and small mammals of Coffee Ranch and Higgins local faunas show few genera and few species in common, which is urged that the type locality and type local fauna of the Hemphillian Land Mammal Age be restricted to the Coffee Ranch alone. Expand
