Brachycrus siouense

Mammalia - Artiodactyla - Merycoidodontidae

Taxonomy
Pronomotherium siouense was named by Sinclair (1915). Its type specimen is PU 12057, a mandible (right ramus of the lower jaw with p1-m3 and alveoli of i1-c.), and it is a 3D body fossil. Its type locality is Princeton Loc. 1000C, which is in a Hemingfordian terrestrial horizon in the Olcott Formation of Nebraska.

It was synonymized subjectively with Brachycrus laticeps by Kelly and Lander (1988); it was recombined as Brachycrus siouense by Schultz and Falkenbach (1940), Shotwell (1968), Lander (1998) and Stevens and Stevens (2007).
