Systematic revision of oxyacodon condylarthra periptychidae and a description of oxyacodon ferronensis new species



Systematic revision of oxyacodon condylarthra periptychidae and a description of oxyacodon ferronensis new species



Journal of Paleontology 57(1 PART 1): 53-72



Oxyacodon (Osborn and Earle, 1895), is a Puercan anisonchine periptychid most closely related to Conacodon. Valid species of Oxyacodon are O. apiculatus (Osborn and Earle, 1895); O. agapetillus (Cope, 1884); O. priscilla (Matthew, 1937); O. ferronensis sp. nov.; and questionably O. marshater (Van Valen, 1978). The upper dentitions of all species except O. marshater are described and figured. These most closely resemble Conacodon entoconus and C. cophater in the lingual expansion of the hypocone and reduction of the P3 protocone. O. agapetillus and O. priscilla are from New Mexico [USA]. O. apiculatus is from New Mexico and Utah, O. ferronensis is from Utah and Montana and O. marshater has previously been reported from Utah and Montana. Fimbrethil ambaronae (Van Valen, 1978) is a junior synonym of O. agapetillus. O. tecumsae (Van Valen, 1978) is probably a junior synonym of Mixodectes malaris (Cope, 1884). O. josephi (Van Valen, 1978) does not belong to this genus but could be related to Hemithlaeus. Lessnessina packmani (Hooker, 1979) is not an anisonchine and is not closely related to Oxyacodon, but bears some resemblance to anagalidans.
