ABSTRACT A new species of Equus, E. (Sussemionus) ovodovi n. sp., was excavated in Proskuriakova Cave (Khakassia, Southwestern Siberia) in deposits carbon dated at 40 000 BP. This slender, middle-sized equid was first considered as related to E. hydruntinus Stehlin & Graziosi, 1935 but biomolecular analyses showed that it actually belonged to a group hitherto unknown of Equus. Indeed, a more detailed study of the fossils evidenced features characteristic of the subgenus Sussemionus Eisenmann… 
Equus (Sussemionus) ovodovi Eisenmann et Vasiliev, 2011 from the Late Pleistocene of Western Siberia
Small equid remains are frequent in the Late Pleistocene deposits in the southern part of Western Siberia. Re-examination of fossil material previously attributed to E. hydruntinus or E. hemionus
Complete mitochondrial genome of an extinct Equus (Sussemionus) ovodovi specimen from Denisova cave (Altai, Russia)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis demonstrates close relationship between this individual and the one previously described in Khakassia and 100% complete mitochondrial genome of E. ovodovi for the first time is recovered.
A new genus of horse from Pleistocene North America
TLDR
The palaeogenomic and morphometric analyses support the idea that there was only a single species of middle to late Pleistocene NWSL equid, and a new genus, Haringtonhippus, is proposed for the sole species H. francisci.
Molecular identification of late and terminal Pleistocene Equus ovodovi from northeastern China
TLDR
Comparison of the three near-complete mitochondrial genomes retrieved from three equid fossil specimens excavated from northeastern China suggests a genetic diversity similar to several extant species of the genus Equus, including E. ovodovi.
Light and shadows in the evolution of South European stenonoid horses
Abstract The appearance of monodactyl equids in Eurasia and their dispersal towards South Europe is a significant event that marks the beginning of the Quaternary period. During the Pleistocene,
Biostratigraphy and Palaeoecology of European Equus
We present an inventory of the progress of recent research on the biostratigraphy and palaeoecology of the genus Equus sensu lato in Europe. Our discussion starts with the new hypotheses concerning
Genomics and the Evolutionary History of Equids.
TLDR
An overview of genomic technologies have provided new analytical solutions that have enhanced understanding of equine evolution, including the species radiation within Equus; the extinction dynamics of several lineages; and the domestication history of two individual species.

Revising the recent evolutionary history of equids using ancient DNA
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses support a major revision of the recent evolutionary history of equids and reveal two new species, a South American hippidion and a descendant of a basal lineage potentially related to Middle Pleistocene equids.
Arvicola mosbachensis (Schmidtgen 1911) of Mosbach 2: a basic sample for the early evolution of the genus and a reference for further biostratigraphical studies
TLDR
This population is therefore one of the oldest of the genus Arvicola, confirmed by SDQ and tooth length values indicating a primitive evolutionary stage, and the age of the population correlates with either Cromer Interglacial III or IV.
