Palaeocastor nebrascensis

Mammalia - Rodentia - Castoridae

Taxonomy
Steneofiber nebrascensis was named by Leidy (1856) [generic allocation questioned by Korth 1996a, who suggests it may belong to Neatocastor]. It is a 3D body fossil.

It was synonymized subjectively with Castor peninsulatus by Cope (1881); it was recombined as Palaeocastor nebrascensis by Leidy (1869), Stirton (1935), Macdonald (1970), Nichols (1979), Wood (1980), Korth (1994) and Xu (1996).
