The Algerian localities of the Gour Lazib area (Early or early Middle Eocene) have yielded an important mammalian fauna. The Hyaenodontida are well represented in this fauna: three species–two are new– are reported. The genus Glibzegdouia, which has been previously described as a possible Carnivora, is now clearly referred to the Hyaenodontida. It appears morphologically close to Masrasector and Dissopsalis. A new genus, Furodon, is described. It appears morphologically close to the oldest… Expand
New hyaenodonts (Mammalia) from the late Ypresian locality of Prémontré (France) support a radiation of the hyaenodonts in Europe already at the end of the early Eocene
Abstract We describe three new hyaenodonts from the late Ypresian locality of Premontre (Aisne, France; close to MP 10 reference level). The new species – Lesmesodon gunnelli nov. sp., CynohyaenodonExpand
Hyainailourine and teratodontine cranial material from the late Eocene of Egypt and the application of parsimony and Bayesian methods to the phylogeny and biogeography of Hyaenodonta (Placentalia, Mammalia)
TLDR
It is found that Hyaenodonta most likely originated in Europe, rather than Afro-Arabia, and it is proposed that the superfamily Hyainailouroidea be used to describe this relationship. Expand
New fossils of Hyaenodonta (Mammalia) from the Eocene localities of Chambi (Tunisia) and Bir el Ater (Algeria), and the evolution of the earliest African hyaenodonts
We present and describe new fossils from the Eocene North African localities of Chambi (Tunisia; late Ypresian or early Lutetian) and Bir el Ater (Algeria; latest Bartonian or earliest Priabonian).Expand
The hyaenodonts (Mammalia) from the French locality of Aumelas (Hérault), with possible new representatives from the late Ypresian
ABSTRACT We describe the carnivorous mammals from the Eocene French locality of Aumelas (Hérault, France). All the carnivores that have been recovered from the fossiliferous locality belong to theExpand
New proviverrines (Hyaenodontida) from the early Eocene of Europe; phylogeny and ecological evolution of the Proviverrinae
TLDR
It is indicated that the Proviverrinae diversified greatly during the Early Eocene Climatic Optimum and show a general trend towards specialization throughout the Eocene. Expand
The first North American Propterodon (Hyaenodonta: Hyaenodontidae), a new species from the late Uintan of Utah
  • S. Zack
  • Geography, Medicine
  • PeerJ
  • 2019
TLDR
Identification of a North American species of Propterodon and an Asian Apataelurus increases the similarity of North American Uintan and Asian Irdinmanhan faunas and suggests that there was substantial exchange of carnivorous fauna during the late middle Eocene. Expand
New Dental Elements of the Oldest Proviverrine Mammal from the Early Eocene of Southern France Support Possible African Origin of the Subfamily
TLDR
This new material shows that, by the beginning of the early Eocene, proviverrines already displayed their typical combination of dental features characterized by the presence of a large paraconid and entoconid on p4, and supports the divergence of the two subfamilies by this time. Expand
Latest Early-early Middle Eocene deposits of Algeria (Glib Zegdou, HGL50), yield the richest and most diverse fauna of amphibians and squamate reptiles from the Palaeogene of Africa
HGL50 is a latest Early-early Middle Eocene vertebrate-bearing locality located in Western Algeria. It has produced the richest and most diverse fauna of amphibians and squamate reptiles reportedExpand
A New Large Hyainailourine from the Bartonian of Europe and Its Bearings on the Evolution and Ecology of Massive Hyaenodonts (Mammalia)
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of hyainailourines is performed to determine the systematic position of K. langebadreae and to understand the evolution of the group that includes other massive carnivores, demonstrating that Hemipsalodon, a North American taxon, is a hyainailsourine and is closely related to European Paroxyaena. Expand
Craniodental and humeral morphology of a new species of Masrasector (Teratodontinae, Hyaenodonta, Placentalia) from the late Eocene of Egypt and locomotor diversity in hyaenodonts
TLDR
Standard and “tip-dating” Bayesian analyses of a character-taxon matrix support a monophyletic Masrasector within Teratodontinae, which is consistently placed as a close sister group of Hyainailouroidea, particularly characters of the nuchal crest, palate, and basicranium. Expand

New Apterodontinae (Hyaenodontida) from the Eocene Locality of Dur At-Talah (Libya): Systematic, Paleoecological and Phylogenetical Implications
TLDR
First cladistic analysis of hyaenodontidans including apterodontines is performed: Apterodon and Quasiapterodon appear close relatives to “hyainailourines”, in particular to the African Oligo-Miocene Metasinopa species. Expand
Further evidence of the African antiquity of hyaenodontid (‘Creodonta’, Mammalia) evolution
TLDR
The discovery of Lahimia provides direct evidence for the antiquity of the African evolution of the Hyaenodontidae and the Koholiinae, which is representative of an old African endemic lineage, as initially recognized, is characterized by synapomorphies of LahIMia and Boualitomus, and also by a shared original prevallum/postvallid shearing.

New proviverrine genus from the Early Eocene of Europe and the first phylogeny of Late Palaeocene–Middle Eocene hyaenodontidans (Mammalia)
TLDR
The probable African origin of the Hyaenodontida supports the diphyletism of ‘Creodonta’ and abandonment of this taxon. Expand
SYSTEMATIC STATUS OF ASIAN “PTERODON” AND EARLY EVOLUTION OF HYAENAELURINE HYAENODONTID CREODONTS
TLDR
Orienspterodon represents the earliest fossil records of Hyaenaelurinae, and some features indicate an early branching of this genus from the other hyaenaeurines. Expand
New discoveries of hyaenodontids (Creodonta, Mammalia) from the Pondaung Formation, middle Eocene, Myanmar -paleobiogeographic implications
TLDR
The alleged paleobiogeographic connection between Asia and Africa in the Eocene appears to be much less supported than previously thought. Expand

Early African hyaenodontid mammals and their bearing on the origin of the Creodonta
TLDR
The identification of Boualitomus and Tinerhodon as the most primitive and earliest known Hyaenodontidae, and the presence of cimolestids in the late Paleocene of Morocco, support an African origin of the family and its order. Expand

The skeleton of Gazinocyon vulpeculus gen. et comb. nov. and the cladistic relationships of Hyaenodontidae (Eutheria, Mammalia)
TLDR
Cladistic analysis suggests that Gazinocyon was related to a clade containing Eurotherium, Propterodon, Hyaenodon, and “Pterodon” hyaenoides, and suggests that Hyaeenodontinae (containing Pterodus, Hy... Expand
Craniodental Morphology and Systematics of a New Family of Hystricognathous Rodents (Gaudeamuridae) from the Late Eocene and Early Oligocene of Egypt
TLDR
The oldest known remains of Gaudeamus are described, including largely complete but crushed crania and complete upper and lower dentitions, and Gaudeamurids are the only known crown hystricognaths from Afro-Arabia that are likely to be aligned with non-phiomorph members of that clade, and as such provide additional support for an Afro -Arabian origin of advanced stem and basal crown members of Hysticognathi.
