Nuevo Mylodontinae (Edentata, Tardigrada) del "Mesopotamiense" de la Provincia de Entre Ríos

Gustavo J. Scillato-Yané


A mylodontid mandibular portion, coming from the mio-pliocene deposits of the Entre Ríos Province (Argentina) is described. The fossil remain belongs to a new taxon, wich is named Megabradys darwini n. gen., n. sp. This ground-sloth is related to Ranculcus, Strabassodon, Pleurolestodon, Sphenotherus, and Prolestodon. The great frequency and diversity of the mesopotamian mio-pliocene mylodontids are significative, but it is difficult to arrive at any clear interpretation of this fact.
