Abstract

Daphaenodon is recognized in Texas for the first time where it is associated with Amphicyon. Amphicyon, a European genus, spread to North America during late early Miocene time and is found on the Gulf Coast in rocks of that age to latest Miocene or earliest Pliocene. On the basis of the presently known material, both A. pontoni Simpson and A. longiramus White can be identified. Aleurodon francisi Hay is reconfirmed as belonging to that genus. The presence of Tomarctus canavus (Simpson) and Cynodesmus iamonensis (Sellards) is recognized, which extends the range of these species from Florida to the Texas Coastal Plain. Edaphocyon pointblankensis n. gen. et n. sp., a procyonid of close relationship to Bassariscus, is described.
