|Title:||Suidés et tayassuidés du burdigalien V-a et du langhien V-b de lisbonne|
|Authors:||Antunes, M. T.|
|Abstract:||Teeth and astragali were used for a biometrical study concerning suids from V-a (upper Burdigalian) and V-b (Langhian) divisions from Lisbon's Miocene series. The Hyotherium (V-b) are identical to those from french localities, hence they all belong in the same species H. soemmeringi. Bunolistriodon populations from V-a and V-b are homogenous; no significant difference between them has been found, inspite of different geological age. Both may be ascribed to B. lockharti. No evolutive trend was detected. The presence of another form close to the north african B. massai could not be confirmed either. French localities' Bunolistriodon populations also seem homogenous and conspecific with those from Lisbon. Notwithstanding its essentially homogenous character, there can be distinguished two sets in both V-a and V-b populations according to M3 size; this remains to be explained, since the last molars are the most likely to show a broad range of variation and are not unequivocally related to sexual dimorphism. Classification of the rare Tayassuidae has been confirmed. All known taxa are shown (see tableau I).|
