The Antilocapridae was a diverse artiodactyl family present in some late Tertiary faunas of North America. In México, its Tertiary fossil record is poorly known. The antilocaprid material described in this paper was collected from the early Blancan fluvial deposits of the San Miguel de Allende Area, state of Guanajuato, México. It includes isolated upper and lower premolars and molars, dental series, and some rami fragments. The material is assigned to Capromeryx tauntonensis. The presence of this species in the early Pliocene of central México represents the oldest record in North America and extends its known geographic distribution from the northwestern United States to central México.
