Author Fukuchi, Akira|
Abstract The terminology for the molars of rhinoceorses is mainly derived from Osborn (1888). However, there is often confusion surrounding nomenclature of cheek teeth and the measuring point of the teeth. The nomenclature for the teeth of rhinoceroses and the controversy were reviewed. In this paper, I suggest the new nomenclatures that are composed of 24 elements for the upper cheek teeth and 12 ones for the lower ones and I also suggest the measuring points of teeth of the Rhinocerotidae.

Abstract  The partially preserved left humerus of the Desmostylia (Mammalia) has been collected from the riverbed in Obara, Misaki-cho, Okayama Prefecture in the western Japan. This specimen can be classified to the genus Paleoparadoxia by the following features: the absence of the supratrochlear foramen; the curved disto-lateral border of the shaft in the antero-posterior view; the medio-laterally expanded flat trochlea of humerus. Moreover, this specimen can be referred to cf. P. media on the basis of its middle-sized dimensions. This is the second occurrence of Palaeoparadoxia from Okayama Prefecture.
