  • Among Artiodactylamorpha, dichobunoids are some of the oldest fossil species that have been associated with Artiodactyla, the crown clade that includes hippopotamids, camelids, suoids, ruminants, and cetaceans. These important fossil species are known from early Eocene rocks of North America, Europe, and Asia, but their phylogenetic position has yet to be well resolved. Before generating such a phylogeny, it is first critical to document all of the anatomy of known dichobunoid fossils. Here we… CONTINUE READING
