This is a relatively short volume (112 pages) comprising eight articles on various members of the Miocene ‘fauna’ of Venezuela. The material includes decapod crustaceans, a variety of bony fish, a gavialoid crocodile, turtles, an astrapothere, some xenarthran remains and fragments of a toothed whale. This is a valuable set of accounts that draws attention to a less-well-studied part of the world; however these contents are relatively narrow and specialist, and would attract a correspondingly narrow readership. As with all Palaeontological Association publications the quality is of a generally very high standard.
