“K” is for Krauseia

“K” is for Krauseia

Krauseia is a multituberculate in the family Eucosmodontidae. Nine specimens of Krauseia clemensi are known from The Breaks.

Prior to research in The Breaks, the distribution of Krauseia was limited to the Torrejonian. Findings from The Breaks extend its distribution into the earliest part of the Tiffanian, into the overlap zone.

A quick sketch of the type right lower fourth premolar of Krauseia from the Torrejonian-aged Swain Quarry. I drew this while visiting the collections at the American Museum of Natural History.
