ABSTRACT The late middle Miocene fossil-bearing lignite zones of the Mae Moh Basin, northern Thailand, have yielded a rich vertebrate fauna, including two species of Carnivora described thus far: the bunodont otter Siamogale thailandica (known from over a 100 specimens) and the large amphicyonid Maemohcyon potisati. Here we describe additional carnivoran material from Mae Moh comprising new remains of Maemohcyon potisati as well as remains of seven new carnivorans belonging to at least four… Expand
A review of Semigenetta (Viverridae, Carnivora) from the Miocene of Eurasia based on material from the hominid locality of Hammerschmiede (Germany)
Abstract The present article offers a detailed review of the taxonomy, distribution and palaeoecology of the genus Semigenetta. The study is based on new craniodental and postcranial remains of theExpand

Middle Miocene Bovids from Mae Moh Basin, Northern Thailand: The First Record of the Genus Eotragus from Southeast Asia
We describe the first bovid fossils from the late middle Miocene (13.4–13.2 Ma) of the Mae Moh Basin of Northern Thailand, and assign the material to the new species Eotragus lampangensis sp. nov.,Expand
A new amphicyonid (Mammalia, Carnivora, Amphicyonidae) from the late middle Miocene of northern Thailand and a review of the amphicyonine record in Asia
It appears that Maemohcyon does not have close relationships with contemporary Amphicyon , Pseudocyon, Ischyrocyon, Pliocyon or earlier genera, and is likely to have evolved in this insulated region until the late middle Miocene. Expand
Hyaenodonts and carnivorans from the Early Oligocene to Early Miocene of Xianshuihe Formation, Lanzhou Basin, Gansu Province, China
Fieldwork in the 1990s produced a few records of carnivorous mammals (creodonts and carnivorans) in the early Oligocene through early Miocene of Lanzhou Basin, Gansu Province, China. Although onlyExpand
Diversity of Amphicyonidae (Carnivora, Mammalia) in the Middle Miocene Halamagai formation in Ulungur River area, Xinjiang, Northwestern China
ABSTRACT Amphicyonidae is one of the most widely distributed families of Carnivora in the Early and Middle Miocene, yet the fossil record of this family is extremely poor in Eastern Asia. In thisExpand
species of carnivores have been collected from the Late Miocene and early Pliocene sediments of the eastern foothills of the Tugen Hills (Lukeino and Mabaget Fms), Baringo District, Kenya. The sampleExpand
Systematics and Phylogeny of Middle Miocene Cervidae (Mammalia) from Mae Moh Basin (Thailand) and a Paleoenvironmental Estimate Using Enamel Isotopy of Sympatric Herbivore Species
The paleoenvironmental studies of five Mae Moh mammalian taxa indicate that the Mae Moh mammals inhabited a wide range of habitats from woodlands to grasslands in a C3-plant-dominated environment and support that Mae Moh herbivores probably lived in a low-seasonal climate during the late middle Miocene of northern Thailand.

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. Expand
New observations on the Late Miocene–Early Pliocene Lutrinae (Mustelidae: Carnivora, Mammalia) from the Middle Awash, Afar Rift, Ethiopia
Abstract New observations on the Late Miocene and Earliest Pliocene mustelids from the Middle Awash of Ethiopia are presented. The Middle Awash study area samples the last six million years ofExpand
Carnivores from the Middle Miocene Ngorora Formation (13-12 Ma), Kenya
A new genus and species of bundont viverrid that is intermediate in size and morphology between Early Miocene Orangictis on the one hand and Plio-Pleistocene Pseudocivetta on the other appears to have been restricted to Africa. Expand
Middle Miocene Carnivora and Hyaenodonta from Fort Ternan, western Kenya
ABSTRACT Fort Ternan is a middle Miocene (c. 13.7-13.8 Ma) site famous for its fossils of Kenyapithecus wickeri Leakey, 1962, considered the earliest African hominoid. Herein, the Carnivora andExpand
