Abstract

An isolated p4 of Prodeinotherium bavaricum (von Meyer, 1831) from the Middle Miocene (Sarmatian) sediments of Svinná (the Danube Basin, Slovakia) is morphometrically described and compared with similarly preserved coeval material from the neighbouring countries. The material points to the taxonomic identification of isolated deinothere p4 teeth based on the combination of size, WI index and the paracristid morphology. The material presented herein is the only occurrence of the Middle Miocene deinothere from the Slovakian part of the Danube Basin.


Key words: Prodeinotherium bavaricum, morphometry, taxonomy, Sarmatian, the Danube Basin, Slovakia
