New data on carnivores from the Middle Miocene (Upper Aragonian, MN 6) of Arroyo del Val area (Villafeliche, Zaragoza Province, Spain)

New data on carnivores from the Middle Miocene (Upper Aragonian, MN 6) of Arroyo del Val area (Villafeliche, Zaragoza Province, Spain)

Several new fossil remains of Carnivora from the aragonian (MN 6, local zone G2) localities of Arroyo del Val and La Barranca (near the village of Villafeliche, Zaragoza province) are studied in the present paper. These fossil sites are very closely located, and probably belonging to the same level....

Abstract: Several new fossil remains of Carnivora from the aragonian (MN 6, local zone G2) localities of Arroyo del Val and La Barranca (near the village of Villafeliche, Zaragoza province) are studied in the present paper. These fossil sites are very closely located, and probably belonging to the same level. The faunal list of Carnivora of both sites includes the following taxa: Hemicyon sp. aff. H. sansaniensis, Plithocyon armagnacensis, Amphicyon giganteus, Plioviverrops sp., Martes sp., Pseudaelurus lorteti, Pseudaelurus quadridentatus, and Protictitherium sp. aff. P. crassum.
Translated abstract: En el presente trabajo se estudian los restos fósiles de Carnivora procedentes de los yacimientos aragonienses (MN 6, Zona local G2) de Arroyo del Val y La Barranca, ambas situadas en las proximidades de Villafeliche (Zaragoza). Estos yacimientos se encuentran situados muy cerca uno del otro, y es más que probable que se correspondan con los mismos niveles. La lista faunística de carnívoros está compuesta de los siguientes taxa: Hemicyon sp. aff. H. sansaniensis, Plithocyon armagnacensis, Amphicyon giganteus, Plioviverrops sp., Martes sp., Pseudaelurus lorteti, Pseudaelurus quadridentatus y Protictitherium sp. aff. P. crassum.
