Large ungulates from the basal Oligocene of Oman: 1 – Embrithopoda


Arsinoitheres (Embrithopoda, Mammalia) have been known to occur in the Early Oligocene of Oman since 1992, yet the fossils on which the records were based have not yet been published. This contribution rectifies this situation and provides the first secure basis for the presence of arsinoitheres in Oman, some post-cranial material previously attributed to this genus being of uncertain affinities. The Omani records and the one in the Shumaysi Formation, Saudi Arabia, extend the distribution of Arsinoitherium adrewsi to the northeastern extremities of the Afro-Arabian Continent
