The present study describes two new species, Prolagus pannonicus sp. nov. and P. latiuncinatus sp. nov., from the Late Miocene Hungarian localities Sümeg (MN10/11) and Polgárdi 2 (MN13). These species are closely related, probably by a direct ancestor–descendant relationship. They share characters common to Late Miocene–Pliocene eastern European species (e.g., the retention of the entoconid enamel in p3 contrarily to coeval western European ones), attesting to an eastern European group of… 

Fossil Lagomorpha (Mammalia) of Italy: systematics and biochronology

Revisions performed in the last 15 years added remarkable novelties to the taxonomy and biochronology of Italian fossil lagomorphs. Several new taxa have been erected basing on new materials and on

COMPARING THE BODY MASS VARIATIONS IN ENDEMIC INSULAR SPECIES OF THE GENUS PROLAGUS (OCHOTONIDAE, LAGOMORPHA) IN THE PLEISTOCENE OF SARDINIA (ITALY)

BM of some populations of these two species was calculated using regression models, and Mein’s (1983) biphasic model seems applicable to the evolution of P. figaro and P. sardus.

The richest vertebrate sites in the Carpathian Basin are mainly Neogene and Pleistocene, but there are also some Mesozoic localities that have been researched for decades and are of great

Dental enamel ultrastructure in Ochotona and Prolagus (Mammalia: Lagomorpha: Ochotonidae) from three late Miocene localities in Ukraine

There is almost no difference in the enamel ultrastructure between remains of different geological age and tooth position (premolars, molars), however, the lower incisor of Ochotona differs from the upper one in having a radial enamel and a HSB layer, whereas the upper have a radial and a tangential enamel.

The dental features of Alloptox katinkae and analyses of the rest of the faunal assemblage of Litke 2 indicate that A. katinksae, contrarily to other congeneric species, lived in a wooded, wet environment.

New Characters for Species Discrimination within the Genus Prolagus (Ochotonidae, Lagomorpha, Mammalia)

The introduction of new maxillary and mandibular morphological characters and measurements allow for a more accurate taxonomic assignment of Prolagus species, thus improving the estimation of faunal palaeodiversity, detection of sympatric species and taphonomic mixing, and contributing to more reliable biochronological, palaeogeographical, and phylogenetic inferences based on Pro Lagus.

Lagomorphs from the Miocene of Sandelzhausen (southern Germany)

All Prolagus specimens have been classified as P. crusafonti-like, until there is a general revision of European primitive lagomorphs, the Sandelzhausen giant lagomorph is classified as “Amphilagus” sp.

MN10 Prolagus (Ochotonidae, Lagomorpha) from Austria: a new tile for the central European palaeobiogeography of the genus

The results suggest that the evolution of the genus Prolagus followed different pathways in eastern Central Europe at least since early Late Miocene and evidences that the palaeobiogeography of Pro Lagus in European LateMiocene is much more complicated than previously expected.

LIZARDS FROM THE LATE MIOCENE OF POLGÁRDI (W-HUNGARY)

The composition of lizard fauna from Polgárdi 4 localities point to a mosaic of xeric or mesophilous vegetation, somewhat contrasting with those from Poledi 5 in which the occurrence of varanid lizards might indicate presence of aquatic habitats.

Study of the representative fossil material of Ochotona pusilla Pallas, 1768 found at the localities of La Fage (Correze) and of Baume de Gigny (Jura) in France reveals that the small late Pleistocene pika can be described as a new subspecies of ochotonid remains.
