Wasatchian (early Eocene) mammals and other vertebrates from Baja California, Mexico : the Lomas Las Tetas de Cabra fauna. Bulletin of the AMNH ; no. 208

This book discusses the faunal Composition and Correlations, Marine Strata, Rosarito Quadrangle, and Paleomagnetic Results of the Herpetofauna from Lomas Las Tetas de Cabra.

The Neurocranium of Ekweeconfractus amorui gen. et sp. nov. (Hyaenodonta, Mammalia) and the Evolution of the Brain in Some Hyaenodontan Carnivores

A nearly complete cranium of Ekweeconfractus amorui gen. et sp.

Dissopsalis, a middle and late Miocene proviverrine creodont (Mammalia) from Pakistan and Kenya

ABSTRACT Old World Miocene proviverrine creodonts include Dissopsalis carnifex from Pakistan and Dissopsalis pyroclasticus from Kenya. D. carnifex is a common predator in the middle and late Miocene

Postcrania and paleobiology of Patriofelis ulta (Mammalia, Oxyaenodonta) of the Bridgerian (lower–middle Eocene) of North America

P. ulta is interpreted, one of the largest carnivores in its ecosystem, as an ambush predator capable of grappling prey with its flexible forearms.

Craniodental and Postcranial Morphology of Indohyaenodon raoi from the Early Eocene of India, and Its Implications for Ecology, Phylogeny, and Biogeography of Hyaenodontid Mammals

The most comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of Hyaenodontidae to date is presented, which corroborates this relationship but finds South Asian hyaenodonids to be the stem of a group that includes most African hyaENodontids.

Skeletal morphology and locomotor adaptation in Prolimnocyon Atavus, an early eocene hyaenodontid creodont

ABSTRACT Analysis of a recently discovered partial skeleton of Prolimnocyon atavus, an early Eocene creodont (Hyaenodontidae, Limnocyoninae), from the Willwood Formation of the Bighorn Basin,

The cranium of Proviverra typica (Mammalia, Hyaenodonta) and its impact on hyaenodont phylogeny and endocranial evolution

Comparisons with several previously described endocasts show that there was an increase in complexity in the convolutions of the encephalon within Hyaenodontidae history, and it is revealed that the endocranium of the Hyaanodonta is not smaller than those of fossil Carnivora or some extant CarnivORA.

Study of the endocranium and ecology of Eurotherium theriodis, a European hyaenodont mammal from the Lutetian

Hyaenodonts are extinct placental mammals with a carnivorous diet. Their phylogenetic position among mammals and the relationships within Hyaenodonta are at present partially unresolved. The

A skeleton of a Uintan machaeroidine ‘creodont’ and the phylogeny of carnivorous eutherian mammals

An edentulous partial skeleton of a carnivorous mammal from the Uinta Formation (middle Eocene) of Utah is referred to the rare and enigmatic sabre-tooth clade Machaeroidinae primarily on the basis

New Species of the Rare Early Eocene Creodont Galecyon and the Radiation of Early Hyaenodontidae

  • S. Zack

    Journal of Paleontology
  • 2011
New specimens greatly improve understanding of the morphology of this early Eocene genus, thereby enhance knowledge of the earliest radiation of Hyaenodontidae, and include the first associated upper dental remains, as well as fragmentary cranial remains.



Palæonictis in the American Lower Eocene

PALÆONTOLOGISTS will welcome Dr. T. L. Wortman's discovery of a nearly complete skull of Palœonictis in the Wahsatch Lower Eocene of Wyoming. The only specimens of this form known hitherto are the

The Arboreal Ancestry of the Mammalia

The present knoxvledge of fossil Mammalia and of the course of evolution of the various modern races enables us to foreshadow with considerable detail the characters of a common ancestral group from which all known mammals, excepting the Prototh eria, are descended.

Introduction and Succession of Vertebrate Life in America

THE origin of life, and the order of succession in which its various forms have appeared upon the earth, offer to science its most inviting and most difficult field of research. Although the primal

III.—Notes on Some Fossil Carnivora and Rodentia

It is advisable to give a brief preliminary notice of some rather interesting points in connection with the structure and distribution of a few forms of Carnivora and Rodentia.

New Carnivora from the Tertiary of Mongolia

Paracynohysnodon morrisi, new species TYPE.-No. 19160, lower jaw, immature, with ml unworn, ps and m8 preformed, Irdin Manha beds. Found by F. K. Morris, 23 miles south of Iren Dabasu.

Preliminary description of new Tertiary mammals

The explorations of the Yale College party in the Rocky Mountain region, during the past season, brought to light many interesting species of new Mammals, and in the present communication a number of these from Wyoming Territory are briefly described.
