Felid material from the middle Early Pleistocene Haro River quarry, northern Pakistan, is described. Most of the material is referred to the Eurasian jaguar, Panthera gombaszogensis georgica, representing the first record of the jaguar in southern Asia. A systematic review of dental morphology of all living species of Pantherinae is made to provide a better background for studying the evolution of pantherine cats. A renewed dispersal scenario of the jaguar in Eurasia is provided. Panthera… 
First discovery of Megantereon skull from southern China
ABSTRACT The sabertoothed cat Megantereon is an iconic carnivore in the Pleistocene of Eurasia, yet its fossil record is extremely rare and highly fragmentary in southern China (and the whole

A revision of the genus Dinofelis (Mammalia, Felidae)
TLDR
Ecomorphological analysis of both craniodental and postcranial characters suggests that Dinofelis in many respects converged on modern pantherine cats in morphology and behaviour, a trend culminating in the South African D. barlowi and the Asian D. cristata, which are the most pantherian-like of all machairodont felids.
New record of the European jaguar, Panthera onca gombaszoegensis (Kretzoi, 1938), from the Plio-Pleistocene of Langenboom (The Netherlands)
During screen washing in2002 ofglauconitic sedimentsof Miocene and Plioceneage at the ‘De Kuilen’ locality near Langenboom (Wijnker et al., 2008), Mr Jan Boes (Emmeloord), discovered a molarof a
A RE-EVALUATION OF THE DIVERSITY OF MEGANTEREON (MAMMALIA, CARNIVORA, MACHAIRODONTINAE) AND THE PROBLEM OF SPECIES IDENTIFICATION IN EXTINCT CARNIVORES
TLDR
Results indicate that M. cultridens and M. whitei are valid species, because the differences in tooth measurements exceed those expected from sexual dimorphism and do not reveal the effects of biased sampling.
A Late Miocene Ursavus skull from Guanghe, Gansu, China
TLDR
Among the numerous Ursavus species, U. tedfordi is the most advanced and closest related to the living bears (excluding Ailuropoda) in morphology, however, might belong to a side-branch, judging by the autapomorphies possessed by it.
Biostratigraphic and palaeoecological implications of new fossil felid material from the Plio‐Pleistocene site of Tegelen, the Netherlands
TLDR
Considering the size range in sexed samples of extant pantherines in conjunction with a re-examination of the size distributions in the hypodigm of P. gombaszoegensis suggests that sexual dimorphism offers a more plausible interpretation.
Oldest Known Pantherine Skull and Evolution of the Tiger
TLDR
This find supports a north-central Chinese origin of the tiger lineage, and demonstrates that various parts of the cranium, mandible, and dentition evolved at different rates.
Osteology and ecology of Megantereon cultridens SE311 (Mammalia; Felidae; Machairodontinae), a sabrecat from the Late Pliocene – Early Pleistocene of Senéze, France
TLDR
This monograph provides a complete overview of the anatomy of Megantereon cultridens SE311, and compares it with extant large felids, and the few other derived sabrecats from which ample fossil material is known, although most frequently representing several specimens.
