Mammalia - Artiodactyla - Squalodontidae

Taxonomy
Arionius servatus was named by Meyer (1841) [Kellog (1923) states that the type specimen is in the Wurttemb. Naturalien Sammlung at Stuttgart, Germany.]. It is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Baltringen, which is in a Burdigalian marine horizon in Germany.

It was replaced with Squalodon meyeri by Brandt (1874) and Roger (1887); it was considered a nomen dubium by Dal Piaz (1916); it was recombined as Squalodon servatus by Van Beneden and Gervais (1880), Zittel (1894), Studer (1898), Trouessart (1898), Trouessart (1904) and Rothausen (1968).
