Abstract

African Middle Miocene suiform faunas are rather poorly known. Some taxa are well represented at one or two sites, but in general the material is rather scrappy. As a result, there has been confusion about which taxa are present at which localities, and differences of opinion exist about which specimens belong to which taxa. The discovery of a rich and diverse suoid fauna at Kipsaraman, a Middle Miocene site in Kenya, helps to throw light on several lineages including kubanochoeres and kenyapotamines. The fauna also contains remains of namachoerines and listriodonts.
