The record of Deinotheriidae from the Miocene of the Swiss Jura Mountains (Jura Canton, Switzerland)

Gagliardi, Fanny ; Maridet, Olivier ; Becker, Damien

In: bioRxiv, 2021, p. 244061

The Miocene sands of the Swiss Jura Mountains, long exploited in quarries for the construction industry, have yielded abundant fossil remains of large mammals. Among Deinotheriidae (Proboscidea), two species, Prodeinotherium bavaricum and Deinotherium giganteum, had previously been identified in the Delémont valley, but never described. A third species, Deinotherium levius, from the locality of...

Anchitheriinae (Perissodactyla, Equidae) from the early middle Miocene locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina)

Becker, Damien ; Tissier, Jérémy ; Vasilyan, Davit ; Göhlich, Ursula B.

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2020, p. -

The early middle Miocene (European Land Mammal Zone MN5-earliest MN6) locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina) has yielded numerous well-preserved dental remains of two Anchitheriinae species: Anchitherium hippoides and Anchitherium ezquerrae. This anchithere assemblage is typical of the Orleanian European Land Mammal Age and is recorded for the first time in Southeastern...

New paroxyclaenid mammals from the early Eocene of the Paris Basin (France) shed light on the origin and evolution of these endemic European cimolestans

Solé, Floréal ; Plateau, Olivia ; Le Verger, Kévin ; Phélizon, Alain

In: Journal of Systematic Palaeontology, 2019, vol. 17, no. 20, p. 1711–1743

We present new species of an enigmatic family of mammals, which is endemic to Europe, the Paroxyclaenidae: Merialus bruneti sp. nov., Fratrodon tresvauxi gen. et sp. nov., Paraspaniella gunnelli gen. et sp. nov., and Sororodon tresvauxae gen. et sp. nov. The fossils described come from six localities of the Ypresian of the Paris Basin (France): Pourcy (MP7), Mutigny, Avenay, Condé-en-Brie...

New data on the Miocene dormouse Simplomys García-Paredes, 2009 from the peri-alpin basins of Switzerland and Germany: palaeodiversity of a rare genus in Central Europe

Prieto, Jérôme ; Lu, Xiao-Yu ; Maridet, Olivier ; Becker, Damien ; Pirkenseer, Claudius ; Rauber, Gaëtan ; Peláez-Campomanes, Pablo

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2019, vol. 99, no. 3, p. 527–543

Simplomys, a dormouse with a simple dental morphology compared to other glirids, shows a continuous evolution in Spain during the end of the Ramblian and up to the middle Aragonian, the stratigraphic frame considered in this work. In contrast, the record of the genus in Central Europe is reduced to a few localities spanning from the early to the middle Miocene. We review the record from the...

Rhinocerotidae from the early middle miocene locality Gračanica (Bugojno basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina)

Becker, Damien ; Tissier, Jérémy

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2019, p. -

The early middle Miocene (European Land Mammal Zone MN5) locality Gračanica (Bugojno Basin, Bosnia-Herzegovina) has yielded numerous well-preserved dental remains of four Rhinocerotidae species: Brachypotherium brachypus, Lartetotherium sansaniense, Plesiaceratherium balkanicum sp. nov. and Hispanotherium cf. matritense. This rhinocerotid assemblage is typical of the Orleanian European Land ...

Biochronological and palaeobiogeographical significance of the earliest Miocene mammal fauna from Northern Vietnam

Antoine, Pierre-Olivier ; Made, Jan van der ; Métais, Grégoire ; Phuc, Laq The ; Quan, Quý Tr??ng ; Schneider, Simon ; Tran, Dang Ngoc ; Vasilyan, Davit ; Viet, Luong The ; Böhme, Madelaine

In: Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments, 2018, vol. 98, no. 2, p. 287–313

Current scientific knowledge of Tertiary fossils from south of the Ailao Shan-Red River shear zone is extremely poor, in sharp contrast with the situation nowadays, as the area of Laos and Vietnam is regarded as a global hotspot of biodiversity. In this context, the few localities that yielded fossil assemblages are of first importance for the understanding of Cenozoic palaeobiogeography and...
