North American Mammalian Paleofaunal Database: Missing Species

North American Mammalian Paleofaunal Database: Missing Species

The following North American fossil mammal species are not included in the paleofaunal database, but do appear to be valid. I have divided these species into three categories depending the reason for my failure to place them in a faunal list.

Note: this is far from an exhaustive list; only species whose first lower molar measurements are known to me are included. In particular, there are many more Recent species that could be included in the third and final list. If you would like to suggest additions or corrections to the list, please write to me.
