Affinities of Teilhardina (Primates, Omomyidae) with description of a new species from North America

T M Bown
Folia Primatologica; International Journal of Primatology 1976, 25 (1): 62-72
Teilhardina is a fifth primate found in Early Tertiary rocks of both Europe and North America. Both T. belgica and the new North American species are anaptomorphines; however, neither species is ideally suited for the ancestry of the New World Omomyidae. Pelycodus and the Adapidae are not closely related to Teilhardina and Torrejonian Palenochtha is probably not in the ancestry of omomyids. A combination of dental characters in earliest Anemorhysis suggest this primate is the most generalised known omomyid.
