A lemuroid form of mammal, believed to be of the type from which man has descended, has also been found in these beds.
It appears, however, to be a lemuroid, and is of American range.
As yet no remains have been found in the Nearctic Region, where lemuroid remains occur so abundantly.
It has been pointed out that the form of the lower jaw "much resembles that of the lemuroid Microrhynchus."
From the lemuroid branch the higher Primates can be derived.
