TABLE 1. Occurrences of nyctitheriid and equivalent-sized non-nyctitheriid taxa, mostly known dentally, in the levels and localities from which postcranials are described herein. The Hamstead Member (earliest Oligocene) belongs to the Bouldnor Formation, the rest to the Headon Hill Formation (Late Eocene). The levels at Hordle and Headon Hill are in the Totland Bay Member. These records update Hooker (1987, 2010) and Hooker et al. (2005), where details of the stratigraphy can be found. 1, C. beata Crochet, 1974, previously recorded, is indistinguishable from C. woodi . 2, Based tentatively only on an ulna.
