A New Species of the Suid Genus Kolpochoerus from Ethiopia
Although the suid genus Kolpochoerus is well known from the Plio-Pleistocene of Africa, the evolutionary history of one of its constituent species, K. majus, remained obscure until substantial fossilExpand
New fossils of Suidae (Mammalia, Artiodactyla) from the Hasnot Late Miocene, northern Pakistan.
A variety of suids from the Dhok Pathan Formation of the Middle Siwaliks are identified, described and discussed in this paper. The new remains were recovered from the Late Miocene continentalExpand
The Evolution of Suidae.
TLDR
The current knowledge of this fascinating group of Cetartiodactyla is reviewed and a comprehensive evolutionary history from the Oligocene to the present day is provided. Expand
Potamochoerus porcus (Artiodactyla: Suidae)
TLDR
This is the brightest colored wild pig species and is identified by its rufous coat and white dorsal crest; spectacled black-and-white facemask; and elongated, leaf-shaped ears that end in terminally drooping tufts of hair. Expand
Suids from the Pleistocene of Naungkwe Taung, Kayin State, Myanmar
Abstract. The aim of this paper is to put on record an occurrence of fossiliferous spelean sediments at Naungkwe Taung, Myanmar, not far from the mouth of the Salween River where it debouches intoExpand
New material of Sus strozzii (Suidae, Mammalia) from the Early Pleistocene of Italy and a phylogenetic analysis of suines
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of both living and fossil Eurasian and African Suinae is carried out to reconstruct their relationships and the results are in agreement with the literature based on molecular and/or morphological analyses. Expand
Newly Discovered Crania of Nyanzachoerus jaegeri (Tetraconodontinae, Suidae, Mammalia) from the Woranso-Mille (Ethiopia) and Reappraisal of Its Generic Status
TLDR
It is shown that the two genera Nyanzachoerus and Notochoerus are clearly distinguished from each other by distinct morphological features of the cranium such as the shape of the braincase, orientation of the zygomatic arches, and premolar/molar ratio, among others. Expand
Genetic origins and diversity of bushpigs from Madagascar (Potamochoerus larvatus, family Suidae)
TLDR
Investigation of the immunologically important SLA-DQB1 peptide-binding region showed a different immune repertoire of bushpigs in Madagascar compared to those on the African mainland, with seventeen exon-2 haplotypes unique to bushpig in Madagascar (2/28 haplotypes shared). Expand
The post-Jaramillo persistence of Sus strozzii (Suidae, Mammalia) in Europe: New evidence from the Vallparadís Section (NE Iberian Peninsula) and other coeval sites
Abstract The Vallparadis composite section (VCS) includes the nearby paleontological sites of Cal Guardiola and Vallparadis Estacio (Valles-Penedes Basin, northeastern Iberian Peninsula). The sectionExpand
Neurocranial anatomy of Sus arvernensis (Suidae, Mammalia) from Collepardo (Early Villafranchian; central Italy): taxonomic and biochronological implications
Suidae remains recovered from the late Pliocene site of Collepardo (Latium, central Italy) are described and assigned to Sus arvernensis, a small-sized Ruscinian to Early Villafranchian (MN14-MN16a...

Suid evolution and correlation of African hominid localities
TLDR
Suid data are employed in a refinement of stratigraphic correlations at Omo Shungura, Olduvai, and east of Lake Turkana and in a correlation of East African and South African sites, with important implications for interpretation of hominid evolution. Expand

The earliest Metridiochoerus (Artiodactyla: Suidae) from the Usno Formation, Ethiopia
TLDR
This earliest known upper third molar is the most primitive example of Metridiochoerus yet documented, and firmly anchors this long-lasting and biochronologically useful species lineage. Expand
Deux nouvelles espèces de Suini (Mammalia, Suidae) du continent Africain (Éthiopie; Tchad)
Two new small Suines, Kolpochoerus deheinzelini sp. nov. and Kolpochoerus cookei sp. nov., are described. The first one represents the earliest appearance of the genus and the earliest African Suine.Expand
New skulls of Kolpochoerus phacochoeroides (Suidae: Mammalia) from the late Pliocene of Ahl al Oughlam, Morocco
TLDR
A cladistic analysis shows that K. phacochoeroides and Hylochoerus are the terminal branches of the Kolpochoernes clade, which is the sister-group of Potamochoers, and its distinction as a species of its own is confirmed. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Suidae (Mammalia, Cetartiodactyla): new insights on the relationships within Suoidea
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships of the Suidae (Mammalia, Cetartiodactyla): new insights on the relationships within Suoidea are revealed. Expand
Evidence of two genetically deeply divergent species of warthog, Phacochoerus africanus and P. aethiopicus (Artiodactyla: Suiformes) in East Africa
TLDR
Mitochondrial and single-copy nuclear DNA sequences show that common and desert warthogs belong to two deeply divergent monophyletic lineages, that might have originated in the last part of the Pliocene. Expand
Dietary adaptations of extant and Neogene African suids
TLDR
The increase in size and complexity of nyanzachoere teeth reflects their exploitation of C4 vegetation, although the nyanZachoeres did not acquire their grazing habits until after contemporary perissodactyls and proboscideans had become dedicated C4 grazers. Expand
Suid evolution and correlation of African hominid localities: an alternative taxonomy.
TLDR
An alternative scheme is suggested, in which 9 genera and 21 species are recognized and the taxonomic and phylogenetic differences do not have any significant effect on the stratigraphic interpretations offered by White and Harris. Expand
