434 The first representatives of Elephantiformis Tassy 1988 spread from Africa to Eurasia about 22–21 Myr ago (to Europe, about 18 Myr ago) [1, 2]. In Asia, fos sil Proboscidea are very diverse; three superfamilies were the most widely spread in the late Cenozoic era: Mammutoidea Hay, 1922 (zygodont mastodons), Gomphotheriidae Hay, 1922 (gomotheres), and Ele phantoidea Gray, 1821 (elephants and extinct ele phantoids). Of considerable interest is not only the time of the first appearance of… Expand

New data on the migration of the family Elephantidae (mammalia, proboscidea) in Eurasia
In the opinion, only Middle and Late Pleistocene representatives of mammothoid elephants should be assigned to the genus Mammuthus, while earlier members of this lineage belong to the genera Archidiskodon. Expand

Chronological sequence and subdivision of Chinese Neogene mammalian faunas
Six land mammal ages are recognized for the Neogene of East Asia. The ages are based upon updated large and small mammal faunas and replace or redefine the land mammal stages erected by Li et al.Expand
Although the premolars of Mammut americanum are morphologically similar to the adult molars in many respects, differences in development of cingula, orientation of lophs and lophids, and relative strengths of enamel crests are observed. Expand
The “Proboscidean Datum Event:” How Many Proboscideans and How Many Events?
The expression “Proboscidean Datum Event” has been coined by Madden and Van Couvering (1976) to name the major dispersal event which concerned mammalian faunas and which was known to have occurred inExpand
