ABSTRACT We present the first record of the mustelid Trochictis from the Late Miocene (MN 9/10) of Germany, a partial mandible with p4, m1, and m2 from Eppelsheim. Trochictis peignei sp. nov. is characterised by the combination p4 with a distal accessory cuspid and a basal lingual enlargement, m1 with a length/width index larger than 2.5, a rounded lingual wall of the paraconid, an entoconulid present, the metaconid as high as the paraconid, and cuspules present on the posterior talonid edge…

Aragonictis araid, gen. et sp. nov., a Small-Sized Hypercarnivore (Carnivora, Mustelidae) from the Upper Middle Miocene of the Iberian Peninsula (Spain)

ABSTRACT Small to medium-sized mustelids from the last 18 million years represent a heterogeneous group of carnivorans with a wide-ranging record in the northern hemisphere. They were first referred



First record of Lartetictis (Carnivora, Mustelidae, Lutrinae) in Turkey from the middle Miocene hominoid locality of Paşalar

ABSTRACT The present paper addresses the study of new fossils of the extinct lutrine Lartetictis Ginsburg & Morales, 1996 from the early middle Miocene of Göriach (Austria, late MN5-early MN6) and

New Craniodental Remains of Trocharion albanense Major, 1903 (Carnivora, Mustelidae), from the Vallès-Penedès Basin (Middle to Late Miocene, Barcelona, Spain)

A cladistic analysis based on craniodental features is consistent with Trocharion being the basalmost member of the Leptarctinae, and suggests that the carnassial notch was independently lost in leptarCTines and in other mustelids.

A non‐aquatic otter (Mammalia, Carnivora, Mustelidae) from the Late Miocene (Vallesian, MN 10) of La Roma 2 (Alfambra, Teruel, Spain): systematics and functional anatomy

A mosaic of features strongly suggests the possibility that the aquatic lifestyle of otters could have appeared after the initial development of the distinctive dental morphology of this specialized group of mustelids.

A new leptarctine (Carnivora : Mustelidae) from the early Miocene of the northern Tibetan Plateau: implications for the phylogeny and zoogeography of basal mustelids

The new Chinese mustelid helps to constrain the age of the Danghe strata, which has important implications for the timing of tectonic activity in the northern Tibetan Plateau and adds additional complexity to the early evolution of the Mustelidae.

Musteloidea (Carnivora, Mammalia) del Mioceno Superior de Venta del Moro (Valencia, España)

The Musteloidea from the Late Miocene locality of Venta del Moro (Valencia, Spain) is described and the following species are identified: Martes ginsburgi nov. sp.

New data on Mustelidae (Carnivora) from Southeast Asia: Siamogale thailandica, a peculiar otter-like mustelid from the late middle Miocene Mae Moh Basin, northern Thailand

Evidence from the dental morphology suggests that Siamogale thailandica belongs to a bunodont otter-like mustelid that evolved in convergence with “true” otters (Lutrinae) toward a semi-aquatic way of life.

Musteloids and feloids ( Mammalia , Carnivora ) from the late Miocene locality of Pikermi ( Attica , Greece )

Some relatively rare carnivore remains from Pikermi are studied. The present specimens include Simocyon primigenius (ROTH and WAGNER, 1854) , Promeles palaeatticus (WEITHOFER, 1888) , Martes

Musteloid carnivores from the upper Miocene of South-Western Bulgaria, and the phylogeny of the Mephitidae

ABSTRACT The upper Miocene sites of Hadjidimovo and Kalimantsi in southwestern Bulgaria have yielded fossils of three musteloids: the ailurid Simocyon Wagner, 1858, the mustelid Promeles Zittel,
