Title: Anomalomys (Rodentia, Mammalia) from Rudabánya, Hungary (Miocene, MN 9): terminology of molars, age categories and phylogenetic interpretations
Year: 2005
Volume: 23
Pages: 19-28.

Abstract: Anomalomys rudabanyensis Kordos, 1989 belongs to the Anomalomys gaudryi-rudabanyensis-petteri lineage. The genus Anomalomys is possibly a descendant of a small species of Eumyarion. Early Miocene species of Anomalomys, notably A. aliveriensis and A. minor, are primitive representatives of the group. Anomalomys cf. rudabanyensis has been reported from outside the Carpathian Basin (Hilleniche, Germany, MN9). Some hitherto unpublished Vallesian material of Anomalomys from Gritsev (Ukraine, MN9) exhibits a transitional morphology7 between Anomalomys rudabanyensis and Allospalax ("Prospatax" or "Allospalax") petteri. The terminology of molar age categories of Anomalomys is defined in the present.
