scientific name

Tragoportax gaudryi
status

 

- Tragoportax gaudryi   , based upon a maxilla GoogleMaps   ( M 1- M 3 = 53.8); its measurements indeed fit what SPASSOV & GERAADS (2004) called Miotragocerus (Pikermicerus) gaudryi   . In addition, a mandible in the SMNK ( Fig. 1 N View Fig. 1 ) also fits this species in size and very long premolars (p2-p4 = 47.5; m1–m3 = 62), and this identification can be accepted.
