dc.description.abstractThis paper describes a new genus and species of eomyid rodent, Meliakrouniomijs tcilsoni, from the Ash Spring local fauna, the latest vertebrate faunule from the Vieja Group of Trans-Pecos Texas. The teeth indicate that it is an eomyid rodent in process of tooth pattern simplification. Resemblances in tooth pattern and jaw structure to heteromyids and eomyids suggest that Meliakrouniomys may represent a transitional stage between the two families.en
