OCCURRENCE OF THE PROBOSCIDEAN GENUS STEGOTETRABELODON IN CHINA

Zhou Mingzhen (Chow Minchen) Zhang Yuping(Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology and Paleoanthropology, Academia Sinica)  
The present paper describes an incomplete molar of a primitive stegodont in the collections of the Museum of IVPP (AS) and assigns it to genus Stegotetrabelodon. The specimen (IVPP, V6276) is the posterior part of a right third upper molar from the Pliocene of Jingbian, Shensi (formerly Kausu) and is identified as a species. (unnamed) of Stegotetrabelodon, a genus now generally considered to be a form transitional between gomphotherid mastodonts and elephantoid proboseideans, or an ancestral form of the latter. Comparisons of our specimen with those of other related forms known in China, demonstrate that a primitive form of stegodontoid molar described by Liu and others as Stegodon primitium, known from the Late Pliocene of Banguo Basin in Yuanmou, Yunnan (Liu et al., 1973), appears to be another Chinese representative of the genus Stegotetrabelodon, in stead of being a species of Stegodon as it was originally described. In addition, a species known from the Middle Miocene Xiacaowan Formation of Northern Jiangsu described by one of the authors (Chow, 1959) as Stegolophodon hueiheensis, is found to differ so markedly from the genotypie and other species typical of that genus that it should be considered as generically distinct from the genus. Stegolophodon. A new generic name Rulengchia is coined here for its designation. Probably it is more in the lineage of the mammuntids, closer to such forms as Miomastodon than to the stegodonts.
