American hipparions are small to medium-sized horses with tridactyl feet and protocones of the upper cheek teeth usually isolated. Clarendonian genera include: Hipparion, Neohipparion, Cormohipparion, Nannippus, and possibly Pseudhipparion. By medial and late Hemphillian time, American genera included only Nannippus and a newly described genus, Hesperohipparion. Five Hemphillian species previously placed in Neohipparion are removed to Hesperohipparion and a new species, H. stirtoni, is described from the Coffee Ranch local fauna of Texas.
