Lophocyonids are one of the more enigmatic groups of Carnivora in the European Miocene fossil record. Lophocyonids are clearly distinguished from other Feliformia by their peculiar lophodont dental morphology. For this reason, the systematic relationships of the family have been controversial. Here we describe and interpret dental remains from the early Miocene of Sabuncubeli, Turkey, which we attribute to a new genus and species: Izmirictis cani. The phylogenetic analysis allows us to include… 
Sabuncubeli too, Bornova, a second micromammal assemblage from the Sabuncubeli section (early Miocene, western Anatolia)
An old test sample from the Sabuncubeli Formation (Manisa, Turkey) yielded an interesting faunule, which, however, up to now had never been described. In Bornova 183, now inaccessible, five species
A new species of Tungurictis Colbert, 1939 (Carnivora, Hyaenidae) from the middle Miocene of Junggar Basin, northwestern China and the early divergence of basal hyaenids in East Asia
ABSTRACT We document new materials of Tungurictis Colbert, 1939, a basal hyaenid (hyena family), from the Junggar Basin in northern Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, northwestern China, and recognize
Presence of the peculiar carnivore Sivanasua in Carinthia
ABSTRACT A lophocyonid carnivore (Mammalia) is reported for the first time from Miocene (lower Badenian, ca. 16 My) deposits in Austria. A single, lower first molar from Schönweg-”Brüchl” (Lavanttal,
