Occitanomys (Rhodomys) sondaari

Mammalia - Rodentia - Muridae

Taxonomy
Occitanomys sondaari was named by van de Weerd (1976) [Type locality is Tortajada A (TOA). The holotype was listed by van der Weerd as IVAU TOA 492. This is, however, erroneous (Wessels, pers. comm. okt. 2007)]. Its type specimen is IVAU TOA 762, a tooth (M1 sup. dext.), and it is not a trace fossil. Its type locality is Tortajada A, which is in the Turolian of marl the Alfambra Formation Spain.

It was recombined as Occitanomys (Rhodomys) sondaari by Martín Suárez and Mein (1991).

Diagnosis
ReferenceDiagnosis
A. van de Weerd 1976O. sondaari is a small Occitanomys species. Its upper M1 has no or a weak t1 bis, the t6-t9 connection of the upper M1, upper M2 and the longitudinal spur of lower M1 and lower M2 are either weak or absent. The teeth of O. sondaari are smaller than those of O. adroveri and brailloni, but larger than those of P. hispanicus. In contrast with O. adroveri and O. brailloni, assemblages of O. sondaari contain some upper M1 and upper M2 without t6-t9 connection.
