A disarticulated, though still roughly associated partial Deinotherium skeleton from the late Middle Miocene (late Sarmatian sensu stricto; 12.2–12.0 Ma) Gratkorn locality (Austria) is described. Based on dimensions and morphology of the material it can be determined as a medium-sized taxon of Deinotheriidae and definitively assigned to the genus Deinotherium. This specimen from Gratkorn confirms the osteological differences in the postcrania between Prodeinotherium and Deinotherium. As the…

Presented here is a middle Miocene proboscidean fauna—deinotheres and gomphotheres—from lignites of the coal mine in Gračanica (Bugojno Basin) in Bosnia–Herzegovina. The material, which exclusively
The first record of Deinotherium (Proboscidea, Mammalia) in the miocene of Adygea
The data on an isolated upper tooth (P4) of Deinotherium sp. from the Late Miocene beds of the Maikop 1 locality (Maikop, Republic of Adygea) are reported. This is the first record of Deinotherium
Late Miocene proboscideans from Samos Island (Greece) revisited: new specimens from old collections
In this article, we present new proboscidean remains from the late Miocene (Turolian) of Samos Island (Greece), which are stored in the old Samos collections of Darmstadt, Frankfurt a.M. (Germany),
Dorcatherium naui and pecoran ruminants from the late Middle Miocene Gratkorn locality (Austria)
TLDR
Morphological data from this work in combination with isotopic measurements indicate a niche partitioning for the ruminants from Gratkorn with subcanopy browsing, top canopy browsing and even a certain amount of frugivory (Dorcatherium naui and Micromeryx flourensianus).

The record of Deinotheriidae from the Miocene of the Swiss Jura Mountains (Jura Canton, Switzerland)
TLDR
A third species, Deinotherium levius, from the locality of Charmoille in Ajoie, is reported herein for the first time in Switzerland, correlating to the European Mammal biozones MN5 to MN9.
Taphonomical and ichnological considerations on the late Middle Miocene Gratkorn locality (Styria, Austria) with focus on large mammal taphonomy
At the Gratkorn locality (Styria, Austria), a highly diverse, late Middle Miocene (late Sarmatian sensu stricto; 12.2–12.0 Ma) faunal assemblage is preserved in a palaeosol. It represents the first
Large mammal ecology in the late Middle Miocene Gratkorn locality (Austria)
TLDR
Most of the larger mammals from GratKorn were not permanent residents of the area around Gratkorn but rather inhabited a wider area, most likely including the Styrian Basin and the higher altitudes of the Eastern Alps’ palaeozoic basement.
Oldest Deinotherium proavum from Europe
TLDR
A sample of 26 cheek teeth from four roughly coeval localities of Ronda Oest de Sabadell (ROS) represent all the permanent upper and lower dentition and can be unambiguously assigned to D. proavum, the largest deinothere from Europe, based on their large size.
