Abstract

Kubanochoerine suids underwent such rapid increase in size from Early to Middle Miocene times that they can be used for biochronology. Megalochoerus khinzikebirus, a gigantic suid occurs at Gebel Zelten, Libya, and at two sites in Kenya dated about 15 Ma. Even larger suids of the same lineage (Megalochoerus homungous) are known from younger deposits in Kenya, Pakistan, Libya and Turkey. The smaller species, Megalochoerus marymuunguae occurs in earlier strata in Kenya(ca 17.2 Ma) and it is, in its turn, larger than older species such as Libycochoerus jeanneli (17-17.8 Ma), Kenyasus rusingensis(17.8 Ma) and Nguruwe kijivium (ca 20 Ma) from East Africa. A record of Libycochoerus massai from the Tugen hills, Kenya (ca 15.5 Ma) provides further evidence in support of the usefulness of this lineage for geochronology.
