Abstract The Plio-Pleistocene fossil rhinoceroses of Eurasia are relatively well known, although their taxonomy and phylogeny are still debated. The fossil rhinoceros material collected at the Bethlehem site during the first half of the 20th century is revised and re-described. Based on morphological comparison of the Bethlehem material with the latest Miocene, Pliocene and Early Pleistocene Eurasian and African species, the specimens are assigned as Rhinocerotini indet., Dihoplus sp. and…

A NEW SPECIES OF DICERORHINUS (RHINOCEROTIDAE) FROM THE PLIO‐PLEISTOCENE OF MYANMAR
TLDR
This is the first discovery of Dicero- rhinus in the upper Miocene to lower Pleistocene of the Indian subcontinent and Mainland Southeast Asia, and fills the chronological and geographical gap of this lineage in Asia.
New and revised occurrences of Dihoplus megarhinus (Mammalia, Rhinocerotidae) in the Pliocene of Italy
Several rhinoceros remains, collected in the Pliocene deposits of Northern Italy and usually ascribed to Dicerorhinus or Rhinocerosmegarhinus, are revised; furthermore, unpublished Pliocene remains
PLIOCENE RHINOCEROTIDAE (MAMMALIA) FROM HADAR AND DIKIKA (LOWER AWASH, ETHIOPIA), AND A REVISION OF THE ORIGIN OF MODERN AFRICAN RHINOS
TLDR
Fossil representatives of the two extant African rhinoceros lineages, Ceratotherium and Diceros, co-occur in the Pliocene deposits of the Hadar Formation, Ethiopia, and the split between the two lineages probably indicates ecological divergence and character displacement between browsing versus grazing specializations.
A revision of Aceratherium blanfordi Lydekker, 1884 (Mammalia: Rhinocerotidae) from the Early Miocene of Pakistan: postcranials as a key
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis based on 282 morphological characters scored for 28 taxa strengthens this statement and supports Pleuroceros and Mesaceratherium as monophyletic genera within Rhinocerotinae.
The Tapiridae, Rhinocerotidae and Suidae (Mammalia) of the Early Villafranchian site of Milia (Grevena, Macedonia, Greece)
ABSTRACT The fossiliferous site of Milia (Grevena, N. Greece) is best known for the excavation of the longest tusks of Mammut borsoni (Hays, 1834) in the world (4.39 m and 5.02 m). In association
The earliest elephants out of Africa: Taxonomy and taphonomy of proboscidean remains from Bethlehem
TLDR
The possibility that two elephantid taxa are represented in the Bethlehem deposit cannot be discounted, and is consistent with a wide size variation seen among the postcranial bones.
Stephanorhinus jeanvireti (Mammalia, Rhinocerotidae) from the early Pleistocene of Colțești (southwestern Romania)
Abstract The Rhinocerotidae material from the early Pleistocene Tetoiu Formation of Colțești (southwestern Romania) is here described for the first time. The rhinoceros is documented by calcaneus and
Earliest occurrence of “Dihoplus” megarhinus (Mammalia, Rhinocerotidae) in Europe (Late Miocene, Pannonian Basin, Hungary): Palaeobiogeographical and biochronological implications
Abstract In 1979, several specimens of Rhinocerotidae were collected from the Late Miocene deposits of the Zala Subbasin, Pannonian Basin, Western Hungary and were inventoried as Rhinoceros sp. Based
Rhinocerotidae (Mammalia, Perissodactyla) from the chrono-stratigraphically constrained Pleistocene deposits of the urban area of Rome (Central Italy)

Abstract Although the rhinoceros remains have high biochronological significance, they are poorly known or scarcely documented in the uppermost Miocene deposits of Europe. Several specimens collected
