Hystrix sp.   ( Fig. 37D, E View FIG )

MATERIAL EXAMINED. — Fragment of right P4 (Ms396).

DESCRIPTION AND COMPARISON

The available premolar shows relatively high crown, higher than in Hystrix primigenia Wagner, 1848   . In this respect it is comparable with the porcupine materials from Perpignan and Weze, which for the time being should be designated as Hystrix cf. primigenia   (Sen pers. comm.).
