Pleistocene small porcupine from the Ural Mountains , Russia , with note on taxonomy of Hystrix vinogradovi (Rodentia, Hystricidae).
Baryshnikov G.F.
P. 43-47
The skull of the Pleistocene Hystrix vinogradovi found in Mokhnevskaya Cave in Middle Ural is examined. This find seems to be the northernmost fossil record of genus Hystrix in Europe . H. vinogradovi is similar to the Recent species, H . ( Acanthion ) brachyura , from South-East Asia in the characters of cranial morphology. Thus H. vinogradovi is considered to be a fossil subspecies of H. brachyura : H. brachyura vinogradovi comb.n.
