A new Pliocene badger from Mexico


Drescher, Arthur Bernard (1939) A new Pliocene badger from Mexico. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology.


Remains of Tertiary badgers are rare and of fragmentary character. Consequently any new material that is found, adds to our knowledge of the history of the group. This paper describes a new species of badger on the basis of three fragmentary lower jaws and a distal portion of a right humerus. The specimens were collected by the California Institute of Technology in deposits which appear to be middle Pliocene in age, near Rincon, Chihuahua, Mexico.
