      Journal of Vertebrate Paleontology publishes on all aspects of vertebrate paleontology, such as vertebrate origins, evolution, and functional morphology.   Marsh’s Chalicothere (Moropus elatus) is the best known North American chalicothere, and perhaps the most well-represented of the Chalicotheriidae as a whole. This large, browsing herbivore lived during the early Miocene of what are now the states of Nebraska and Colorado.

      However, in this paper we show that the White Mesa alluvium is early Pleistocene (ca. 2 Ma) rather than pre–early Miocene. Combined 40 Ar/ 39 Ar dating of an interbedded tuff and detrital sanidine ages show that the basal White Mesa alluvium was deposited at ± Ma, consistent with a detrital sanidine maximum depositional age of 2. Plate reconstructions indicate that early Miocene Pacific–North American relative motion was not parallel to the transform, but was instead oblique and transtensional. We propose that the western edge of the North American plate east of the transform gravitationally collapsed to the southwest in response to this divergence.

The earliest known member of this group, Protomoropus gabuniai, is known from early Eocene (55mya) of Mongolia. The family extended its range to North America by the late Eocene and they reached Africa by the early Miocene. Miocene Epoch, earliest major worldwide division of the Neogene Period (23 million to million years ago) that extended from 23 million to million years ago, a time when land-dwelling mammals were essentially modern.

Bull Carnegie Mus Nat Hist,4: 1–62 Google Scholar   In the Early Miocene, the earth was still warm despite the gradual cooling since the late Eocene, and grasses became the top plant.

Since Moropus is an archetypical North American prehistoric mammal and is a frequent sight in prehistory books, its rarity is probably due to the age-old neglect of Tertiary animals.

Several recently discovered early Miocene (latest Arikareean and early Hemingfordian) vertebrate faunas from Panama contain a moderate diversity of rodents and a bat, but lack apatemyids (MacFadden et al., ).

The general scarcity of apatemyids in the fossil record and the paucity of Middle American late Oligocene and early Miocene faunas. The Miocene (/ ˈ m aɪ. ə ˌ s iː n, ˈ m aɪ. oʊ-/ MY-ə-seen, MY-oh-) is the first geological epoch of the Neogene Period and extends from about (Ma).

The Miocene was named by Charles Lyell; its name comes from the Greek words μείων (meiōn, "less") and καινός (kainos, "new") and means "less recent" because it has 18% fewer modern sea invertebrates than the Pliocene.The analysis also included a specimen of the early Miocene European castorid, Steneofiber castorinus, and the Pliocene C.

californicus of western North America. A cluster analysis including extant Castor and the three fossil taxa found C. canadensis + C. californicus and C. fiber to form a group, with Sinocastor and Steneofiber forming.Moropus (meaning "slow foot") is an extinct genus of mammal, belonging to a group called chalicotheres, which were perissodactyl ("odd-toed") mammals, endemic to North America during the Miocene from ~— Mya, existing for approximately million years.
