A New Pliocene Badger from Mexico


Drescher, Arthur Bernard (1939) A New Pliocene Badger from Mexico. Master's thesis, California Institute of Technology. doi:10.7907/6S0A-Y810.


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.
