New ochotonids (Lagomorpha) from the Pleistocene of France

  title={New ochotonids (Lagomorpha) from the Pleistocene of France},
  author={Margarita Erbajeva and Sophie Montuire and Jean Chaline},
The mammalian fauna of insectivores, rodents and lagomorphs found at Les Valerots (Nuits-Saint-Georges, Cote-d’Or) dated as early Pleistocene based on the association of Hypolagus Dice, 1917, Mimomys savini Hinton, 1926, Allophaiomys Kormos, 1932 and Dicrostonyx Gloger, 1841 includes only two species of lagomorphs belonging to the families Leporidae and Ochotonidae. Examination of the ochotonid remains shows that the pika from the Les Valerots site is a new taxon, Ochotona valerotae n. sp… Expand

The Late Miocene species Ochotona kalfense (Mammalia, Lagomorpha) of Moldova: The oldest European record of the genus in the context of the earliest Ochotoninae
A detailed revision of the type material from Kalfa is provided, demonstrating an occurrence of a surprisingly advanced p3 phenotype already present in the pre-Turolian of Europe. Expand
How Far into Europe Did Pikas (Lagomorpha: Ochotonidae) Go during the Pleistocene? New Evidence from Central Iberia
The pika mandible was found accompanying the remains of other small mammals adapted to cold climates, indicating the presence of steppe environments in central Iberia during the Late Pleistocene. Expand
Review of the earliest Central European Ochotona (Mammalia: Lagomorpha), with a description of a new species from Poland
The most comprehensive evidence of the earliest Central European Ochotona is presented, with the Villányian and Biharian pikas with relatively elongated p3, well-defined trigonid, long posteroconid, and the slender, low mandible form a conspicuous phylogenetic lineage. Expand
The earliest occurrence of the steppe pika (Ochotona pusilla) in Europe near the Pliocene/Pleistocene boundary
This work presents the first reliable record of the earliest O. pusilla entry deep into Europe in the latest Pliocene, which indicates significant climate change towards more arid, continental conditions, which started influencing Europe at 2.6 Ma. Expand
Taxonomic diversity of Late Cenozoic Asian and North-American ochotonids
Ochotonids (pikas) are an ancient group of mammals originating in the Oligocene of Asia and flourishing in the Miocene of the Old World. During the Pliocene they reduced both their diversity andExpand
Two new species of Prolagus (Lagomorpha, Mammalia) from the Late Miocene of Hungary: taxonomy, biochronology, and palaeobiogeography
Two new species of Prolagus are described from the Late Miocene Hungarian localities Sümeg and Polgárdi 2, attesting to an eastern European group of Pro Lagus that evolved independently from western European species at least since MN10/11. Expand
Çeştepe, a new early Pliocene vertebrate locality in Central Anatolia and its stratigraphic context
The new locality of Cestepe in the Kazan Basin, 45 km NNW of Ankara, yielded the remains of three species of reptiles (cf. Lacerta sp., Anguinae indet. and Varanus sp.) and an ochotonid lagomorph,Expand

New records of Ochotona from Iran and Turkey are reported. The finding of a bone remain of the Recent age (from the Eagle owl pellet) from Turkey represents the first record of the genus and familyExpand
New data on Late Miocene - Pleistocene ochotonids (Ochotonidae, Lagomorpha) from North China
Detailed study of ochotonids from the Late Miocene-Pleistocene of North China revealed more than fifteen ochotonid taxa. They include Ochotona plicodenta sp. nov., O. gracilis sp. nov., O. lingtaicaExpand


Révision des Allophaiomys (Arvicolinae, rodentia, mammalia) des Valerots (Côte-d'Or, France)
Morphometric analysis of the Valerots population of voles allow us to recognize three clearly different taxa: Microtus (Allophaiomys) burgondiae, likely the ancestor of the Chionomys lineage,Expand
The Cape Deceit fauna—Early pleistocene mammalian assemblage from the Alaskan arctic
The existence in northeastern Eurasia and Alaska of a Pleistocene-Recent “Beringian” mammalian realm which has at times contributed to the fauna of more southern regions of the Palaerctic and Nearctic is postulated due largely to differences of continental physiography and Pleistsocene geography south of the Beringian area.
