The pig <i>Propotamochoeurs palaeochoerus</i> from the upper Miocene of Grytsiv, Ukraine

By H. Kubiak, T. Krakhmalnaya and J. van der Made


The suid from Grytsiv (= Gritsev) in Ukraine belongs to the genus <i>Propotamochoerus</i>. This genus was not yet known from the Miocene of eastern Europe. The Grytsiv suid is described and its significance is discussed within the palaeobiogeographical and stratigraphical framework of the genus <i>Propotamochoerus</i>. Grytsiv is geographically situated between three areas with different species of the genus: W Europe (<i>P. palaeochoerus</i>), China (<i>P. hyotherioides</i>) and the Indian Subcontinent (<i>P. hysudricus</i>). In Europe, <i>P. palaeochoerus</i> is replaced at the MN 9-10 boundary or early in MN 10 by a different species of <i>Propotamochoerus</i> with affinities with <i>P. hyotherioides</i> or <i>P. hysudricus</i>. The fossils from Grytsiv extend the known range of <i>P. palaeochoerus</i> eastward into Ukraine.<br><br>El suido de Grytsiv (= Gritsev) en Ucrania pertenece al g&#233;nero <i>Propotamochoerus</i>. Este g&#233;nero todav&#237;a no se conoc&#237;a en el Mioceno de Europa oriental. Se describe el suido de Grytsiv y se discute su significado dentro del marco paleobiogeogr&#225;fico y estratigr&#225;fico del g&#233;nero <i>Propotamochoerus</i>. Grytsiv est&#225; situado entre tres &#225;reas con diferentes especies del g&#233;nero: Europa occidental (<i>P. palaeochoerus</i>), China (<i>P. hyotherioides</i>), y el Subcontinente Indio (<i>P. hysudricus</i>). En Europa, <i>P. palaeochoerus</i> fue substituido en la transici&#243;n MN9-10 o a MN10 por una especie distinta de <i>Propotamochoerus</i> con afinidades con <i>P. hyotherioides</i> o <i>P. hysudricus</i>. Los f&#243;siles de Grytsiv extienden su distribuci&#243;n geogr&#225;fica conocida de <i>P. palaeochoerus</i> por el este hasta Ucrania
