Abstract

Isolated odontocete teeth were found in two Miocene sites in the Dniester River valley. Cetaceans from the both sites possibly represent unknown taxa. One of them is a stem physeteroid, the most similar to Scaldicetus caretti and Early Miocene taxa; another one can be a stem physeteroid or a large stem delphinoid.

Резюме

В двух миоиеновьіх местонахожленнях в долине Днестра о6нар|уженьі отдельньїе зубьі китообразннх. Китьі из обоих местонахождений, возможно, относятся к неизвестньїм науке таксонам. Один из них - примитивньїй кашалот, наиболее схожий с Scaldicetus caretti и раннемиоценовьіми формами; другой, - вероятно, примитивньїй кашалот іілн крупний дельфин

Keywords: cetaceans; sperm whales; Miocene; Eastern Europe
