status

 

Choerolophodon pentelici   (GAUDRY & LARTET, 1856)

The SMNK collection includes only a score of postcranials GoogleMaps   . Because late Miocene Proboscidean postcranials have been neglected, these bones neither confirm nor refute GAZIRYʼs (1976) identification of Choerolophodon pentelici   , but since this identification was based upon a tooth fragment, it can be accepted.
