A new species of the genus Alicornops, A. laogouense, from Laogou in Hezheng County, Linxia Basin, Gansu, China, is described. It is mid‐sized in the subfamily Aceratheriinae, but is the largest known species of Alicornops. It represents the first discovery of the genus in Asia. The Middle Miocene fauna bearing A. laogouense is contemporaneous with the Dingjiaergou fauna of Tongxin, Ningxia, China, and its age corresponds to MN 6 in Europe. The discovery of A. laogouense in the Linxia Basin… 

New material of Acerorhinus yuanmouensis from the Upper Miocene hominoid fauna of the Yuanmou Basin, Yunnan, China

Summary Because few Upper Miocene localities have been discovered in South China, rhinoceros specimens from the Upper Miocene hominoid fauna of the Yuanmou Basin are critical for understanding the

New material of Amphicyon zhanxiangi from laogou, linxia basin suggests a possible southern dispersal with increasing omnivory

ABSTRACT The fossil records of large amphicyonids in Asia are rare and fragmentary, and their evolution and dispersal are also unclear. Here we present new dental material from Laogou, Linxia Basin,

New Rhinocerotidae from the Kisingiri Localities (Lower Miocene of Western Kenya)

A skull from Karungu is one of the best-preserved Miocene skulls in Africa, and is tentatively assigned to a new species of Victoriaceros, a genus whose type species comes from the younger site of Maboko, although theKarungu skull has a much smaller nasal horn.


A cladistic analysis shows that P. rodleri is the sister taxon to ‘Aceratherium huadeensis’, and their phylogenetic relationships allow inclusion of both species in the same new genus.

A New Species of Aceratherium (Rhinocerotidae, Perissodactyla) from the Late Miocene of Nakhon Ratchasima, Northeastern Thailand

This new species has a mixture of primitive and derived characters that differ from the known species of Aceratherium, A. incisivum, and A. depereti, and is consistent with the latest Miocene age of the associated fauna and flora in the Tha Chang sand pits.

Changes in Western European Rhinocerotidae related to climatic variations


A new chilothere species, Acerorhinus hezhengensis represented by associated skull and lower jaw from Late Miocene deposits of Hezheng, Gansu, is described and Heissig's referral of the Chinese "Diceratherium" to Chilotherium as a subgenus is here disputed.
