The petrosal bone of Prodremotherium sp. (Artiodactyla, Ruminantia).Late Oligocene; MP 26; MP 28; periotic bone; ruminant
This project presents the 3D models of two isolated petrosals from the Oligocene locality of Pech de Fraysse (Quercy, France) here attributed to the genus Prodremotherium Filhol, 1877. Our aim is to describe the petrosal morphology of this Oligocene “early ruminant” as only few data are available in the literature for Oligocene taxa.
