New remains of the baluchithere Paraceratherium bugtiense from the Late/latest Oligocene of the Bugti hills, Balochistan, Pakistan

Résumé

New dental and postcranial remains referred to the giant rhinocerotoid Paraceratherium bugtiense are described, originating from its type locality (Lundo Chur), in eastern Balochistan (Pakistan). Probable sexual dimorphism is revealed on the lower incisors. The manus was tridactyl, with a reduced fifth metacarpal. The stratigraphic range of both P. bugtiense and the amynodontid Cadurcotherium indicum extends from the Early Early Oligocene to the Late/latest Oligocene in the Bugti Hills.
