Abstract

Chonecetus sookensis, new genus and species, is based on an incomplete skull and parts of four vertebrae. It has a relatively elongate, tapering brain case, and a semicircular, depressed supraoccipital shield. It appears to be intermediate between archaeocetes and primitive odontocetes, but is tentatively placed in the Archaeoceti without reference to family.
