New discovery of anthracotheres (Mammalia, Artiodactyla) from the Middle Miocene of Sagaing Region, Upper Myanmar
- In this study, anthracotheres from the Middle Miocene of Sagaing Region, Upper Myanmar are re-investigated and newly discovered dental specimens are described. In Myanmar, two Middle Miocene localities are well known for anthracotheres, Male and Thanbinkan localities, Sagaing Region. Four species of anthracotheres (Microbunodon silistrensis, two definite bothriodont anthracotheres and cf. Anthracotherium ingens) are recognized. Most of these are forest- dwelling brachyodont and bunodont species suggesting that their habitats were not open land (savanna) but forest environment with relatively humid, thick forests and large rivers, located not so far from the sea shore.
