Abstract

Mylagaulus kinseyi, n. sp., from Middle Pliocene sites in central Florida is distinguished by its relatively simple premolars, low crown height and small size. It represents a late survival of the Mylagaulus laevis group which must have become established in Florida during Miocene time. The zoogeography and adaptations of mylagaulids are discussed.
