Late middle Miocene caviomorph rodents from Tarapoto, Peruvian Amazonia
TLDR
These fossils document the most diverse caviomorph fauna for the middle Miocene interval of Peruvian Amazonia to date, and extends the geographical ranges of Ricardomys longidens, Microscleromys paradoxalis, and M. cribriphilus, 1,100 km to the south.
Early Oligocene chinchilloid caviomorphs from Puerto Rico and the initial rodent colonization of the West Indies
TLDR
Dental remains from Lower Oligocene deposits of Puerto Rico attests to the presence of two distinct species of chinchilloid caviomorphs, closely related to dinomyids in a phylogenetic analysis, and thus of undisputable South American origin.
Morphology of the lower deciduous premolars of South American hystricomorph rodents and age of the Octodontoidea
TLDR
The crest homologies of lower deciduous premolars of South American caviomorphs are analysed in a comparative context including other hystricomorphs and under a dynamic topological criterion, supporting that an initial divergence among major clades of cavomorphs had already occurred by this time.
Late Miocene Potamarchine Rodents from Southwestern Amazonia, Brazil—with Description of New Taxa
TLDR
New remains, more complete than those previously reported, of potamarchine dinomyids from the Neogene of Brazil are described and suggest a higher diversity of dinomyid in in the western Amazonia than previously supposed.
Middle Miocene vertebrates from the Amazonian Madre de Dios Subandean Zone, Perú
REVISION OF THE MIOCENE CAVIOMORPH RODENTS FROM THE RÍO SANTA CRUZ (ARGENTINEAN PATAGONIA)
Abstract . Fossil rodents from the Rio Santa Cruz (RSC) classic localities (Santa Cruz Formation, Early–Middle Miocene) are known by the works of F. Ameghino and W.B. Scott since the end of the 19 th
On the morphological, taxonomic, and phylogenetic status of South American Quaternary dinomyid rodents (Rodentia: Dinomyidae)
TLDR
The holotype (a dentary with cheek teeth) of this dinomyid is reviewed and new specimens are reported, which include a palatal region with upper cheek teeth (previously unknown), contributing to the anatomical knowledge of this extinct rodent.
