A well-preserved 11.8-million-years-old lower face attributed to the seminal taxon Dryopithecus fontani (Primates, Hominidae) from the Catalan site ACM/C3-Ae of the Hostalets de Pierola area (Vallès-Penedès Basin, Catalonia, NE Spain) is described. [...] Key Result The new data indicate that D. fontani is distinct at the genus level from Late Miocene European taxa previously attributed to Dryopithecus, which are here reassigned to Hispanopithecus.Expand
Taxonomic attribution of the La Grive hominoid teeth.
TLDR
Re-describe the La Grive teeth and critically revise their taxonomic assignment based on metrical and morphological comparisons with other Middle to Late Miocene hominoids from Europe and Turkey, with particular emphasis on those from the Vallès-Penedès Basin.
A partial hominoid humerus from the middle miocene of Castell de Barberà (Vallès-Penedès Basin, Catalonia, Spain).
TLDR
Morphological similarities with the Saint Gaudens specimen, together with the large body mass estimate, suggest a tentative attribution of IPS4334 to cf.
New dental remains of Hispanopithecus laietanus (Primates: Hominidae) from Can Llobateres 1 and the taxonomy of Late Miocene hominoids from the Vallès-Penedès Basin (NE Iberian Peninsula).
TLDR
12 teeth of the fossil great ape Hispanopithecus recovered in 2011 from the locality of Can Llobateres 1 are reported, confirming that hominoid-bearing fossiliferous layers from CLL1 are not exhausted and additional excavations at this site are promising for the discovery of additional remains of H. laietanus in the near future.
The craniodental anatomy of Miocene apes from the Vallès-Penedès Basin (Primates: Hominidae): Implications for the origin of extant great apes
TLDR
Comparisons of internal and external craniodental morphology supports the recognition of five species and four distinct genera within a single subfamily Dryopithecinae (Primates: Hominoidea: Hominidae), thus supporting the view that dryopitheCines precede the pongine-hominine split.
First cranial remains of Cheirogaster richardi (Testudines: Testudinidae) from the Late Miocene of Ecoparc de Can Mata (Vallès-Penedès Basin, NE Iberian Peninsula): taxonomic and phylogenetic implications
TLDR
It is concluded that two different species are recorded from the Iberian Miocene: C. bolivari, from the middle Aragonian of the inner Iberia basins; and C. richardi, from Thessaloniki and Vallesian of the Vallès-Penedès Basin, which supports a sister-taxon relationship between Cheirogaster and Centrochelys.
A unique Middle Miocene European hominoid and the origins of the great ape and human clade
TLDR
A male partial face with mandible of a previously undescribed fossil hominid, Anoiapithecus brevirostris gen. et sp.
New Material of the Hominoid Ouranopithecus macedoniensis from the Late Miocene of the Axios Valley (Macedonia, Greece) with Some Remarks on Its Sexual Dimorphism
TLDR
New hominoid teeth from the late Miocene locality Ravin de la Pluie (RPl) of the Axios Valley (Macedonia, Greece) are studied and suggest that Ouranopithecus multivariate size dimorphism for the premolar, molar and post-canine row is similar to those of Pongo and Lufengpithecus.
New dental remains of Anoiapithecus and the first appearance datum of hominoids in the Iberian Peninsula.
TLDR
The new specimens of A. brevirostris show some slight differences compared with the holotype of this species: smaller size (presumably due to sexual size dimorphism), and less distally-tapering M(2) occlusal contour (which is highly variable in both extant and extinct hominoids).
Enamel thickness in the Middle Miocene great apes Anoiapithecus, Pierolapithecus and Dryopithecus
TLDR
The results suggest that thick enamel might have been the fundamental adaptation that enabled the out-of-Africa dispersal of great-ape ancestors and their subsequent initial radiation throughout Eurasia.
A Partial Skeleton of the Fossil Great Ape Hispanopithecus laietanus from Can Feu and the Mosaic Evolution of Crown-Hominoid Positional Behaviors
TLDR
The combination of quadrupedal and suspensory adaptations in this Miocene crown hominoid clearly evidences the mosaic nature of locomotor evolution in the Hominoidea, as well as the impossibility to reconstruct the ancestral locomotor repertoires for crown hom inoid subclades on the basis of extant taxa alone.

New hominid skull material from the late Miocene of Macedonia in Northern Greece
TLDR
The characters of this specimen are not congruent with those of Sivapithecus and the pongids, but are more primitive and plesiomorphic for the recent hominid clade (Gorilla, Pan and Homo).
New Miocene hominoid specimens from Can Llobateres (Vallès Penedès, Spain) and their geological and paleoecological context
Abstract Nine new dental specimens and their geological context are described from the Late Miocene hominoid locality of Can Llobateres (Valles Penedes, Spain). This brings the number of accessioned
New partial cranium of Dryopithecus lartet, 1863 (Hominoidea, Primates) from the upper Miocene of Can Llobateres, Barcelona, Spain
TLDR
The analysis of the phylogenetic relationships makes us think that Dryopithecus belongs to the clade of the extant great apes and is a primitive member of the Pongo clade, and the hypothesis suggests that some of the dental and postcranial characters shared by Pongo and the African great apes are homoplasies.
Pierolapithecus catalaunicus, a New Middle Miocene Great Ape from Spain
We describe a partial skeleton with facial cranium of Pierolapithecus catalaunicus gen. et sp. nov., a new Middle Miocene (12.5 to 13 million years ago) ape from Barranc de Can Vila 1 (Barcelona,

Remains of the Anthropoid Apes are so rare among fossils, that every new specimen is worthy of special description and discussion. I therefore offer to the Society some account of the fourth known
Additional hominoid material from the Miocene of Spain and remarks on hominoid dispersals into Europe
A hominoid upper molar from Hostalets, recently recognised in collections from the 1920s housed at the Museu i Laboratori de Geologia del Seminari (Barcelona) is assigned to the genus Dryopithecus;
Restoration of the type and palate of Ankarapithecus meteai: taxonomic and phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
The results of this analysis support the sister relationship of Sivapithecus and Pongo, but there is some uncertainty regarding paleobiogeographic and taxonomic relationships to the large hominids from the Siwaliks.
Dryopithecus crusafonti sp. nov., a new Miocene Hominoid species from Can Ponsic (northeastern Spain)
TLDR
Characteristic of the new species are a distinctive lower molar occlusal morphology, large, broad upper molars, and very high crowned upper central incisors with well-developed lingual pillars.
A new hominoid species from the middle Miocene site of Paşalar, Turkey.
TLDR
The morphology of the new species is similar in most respects to that of Kenyapithecus wickeri from Fort Ternan, especially concerning maxillary morphology, and the I(1) morphology, with greatly hypertrophied lingual marginal ridges bounding a uniformly thickened basal crown area, is distinctive among Miocene hominoids.
Middle Miocene Dispersals of Apes
TLDR
The earliest record of fossil apes outside Africa is in the latest early Miocene of Turkey and eastern Europe, and the earliest emigration of apes from Africa coincides with the closure of the Tethys Sea preceding the Langhian transgression.
