Just out @ Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology Additional carnivorans from the early Hemingfordian Miller Local Fauna, Florida Author(s) Jon A. Baskin Abstract: One new species of ailurid and two new genera and species of oligobunine mustelids are recognized from the early Hemingfordian (He1) Miller Local Fauna, Dixie/Levy County, Florida (U.S.A.). The ailurid is congeneric with the European early Miocene Amphictis but is smaller than the Old World species. One new oligobunine
