Paleogene strata in the Huheboerhe area, Erlian Basin, Inner Mongolia, China have been subdivided into three lithological units: the Nomogen Formation, the Arshanto Formation, and the Irdin Manha Formation. At least 12 mammal-bearing horizons have been recognized in these formations, of which 4 in the Nomogen Formation, 6 in the Arshanto Formation, and 2 in the Irdin Manha Formation. Recent investigation proved that the “Houldjin Formation” recognized in this area by the Central Asiatic… Expand

Paleogene integrative stratigraphy and timescale of China
The Paleogene is the first period after the Mesozoic Mass Extinction. Mammals become the dominant group in the terrestrial ecosystem with a rapid radiation, and Asia has been considered to be theExpand
Eocene fossil rodent assemblages from the Erlian Basin (Inner Mongolia, China): Biochronological implications
Abstract Rodents from the Nuhetingboerhe-Huheboerhe area in the Erlian Basin, Inner Mongolia, differ stratigraphically: primitive ctenodactyloids such as Chenomys and Yuanomys are dominant in theExpand
A late early to early middle Eocene mammal assemblage from Bayan Ulan (Inner Mongolia, China): Implication for the reassessment of the Arshantan Asian Land Mammal Age
Abstract Paleogene mammal localities of North China are particularly well represented in the Erlian Basin, Inner Mongolia. Among them, the locality of Bayan Ulan is most famous for its late PaleoceneExpand
Biostratigraphy and Diversity of Paleogene Perissodactyls from the Erlian Basin of Inner Mongolia, China
ABSTRACT Extant perissodactyls (horses, rhinos, and tapirs) comprise a small portion of living mammals, but fossil perissodactyls were more diverse and commonly dominated Paleogene faunas.Expand
Bio stratigraphy and Diversity of Paleogene Perissodactyls from the Erlian Basin of Inner Mongolia, China

ABSTRACT During the last decade, numerous ctenodactyloid rodent fossils have been systematically collected from at least six horizons of the strata that are distributed from the upper part of theExpand
Strenulagus (Mammalia: Lagomorpha) from the Middle Eocene Irdin Manha Formation of the Erlian Basin, Nei Mongol, China
New material of Strenulagus Solaris, a stem lagomorph, from the lower part of the Middle Eocene Irdin Manha Formation at the Irdin Manha and Huheboerhe localities, Erlian Basin, Nei Mongol, ChinaExpand
Small Mammal Fauna from Wulanhuxiu (Nei Mongol, China) Implies the Irdinmanhan—Sharamurunian (Eocene) Faunal Turnover
TLDR
Wulanhuxiu documents replacement, albeit incomplete, of paleoplacental by neoplacentals in the Chinese Eocene record. Expand
New Material of Eocene Helaletidae (Perissodactyla, Tapiroidea) from the Irdin Manha Formation of the Erlian Basin, Inner Mongolia, China and Comments on Related Localities of the Huheboerhe Area
ABSTRACT Perissodactyls first appeared at the beginning of the early Eocene and reached their highest diversity, dominating contemporaneous mammalian faunas in species richness during the middleExpand
Tarsal morphology of ischyromyid rodents from the middle Eocene of China gives an insight into the group’s diversity in Central Asia
TLDR
Differences show that Chinese ischyromyids, although rare, had attained greater taxonomic diversity by the middle Eocene in Nei Mongol than estimated from dental remains, as well as the issue of a direct dispersal route from North America to Asia in the early Eocene. Expand
