Abstract

Eight species of creodonts and carnivores have previously been reported from the Early Miocene deposits at Napak, Uganda. This paper takes into account unpublished material from old collections made by W.W. Bishop during the 1950s and 1960s, as well as new samples made by the Uganda Palaeontology Expedition between 1985 and 2005. Four carnivoran species are reported from the site for the first time, of which one is a new genus and species, and one species is removed from previous lists, making for a grand total of 12 species for Napak comprising 6 creodonts, 4 fissipeds and two incertae sedis.
