Abstract

A new genus and species of arctocyonid condylarth, Lambertocyon eximius, is one of the rarer elements in late Paleocene mammalian faunas from western North America. Lambertocyon is closely related to Mimotricentes, but differs from it in being larger, and in having much more sharply crested cheek teeth. In contrast to the Mimotricentes lineage, Lambertocyon decreased progressively in size through the late Paleocene and into the early Eocene, where it is represented by the Clarkforkian species L. ischyrus.
