Palembertina desplasi, an emended name for

ABSTRACT

The cainotheriid (Artiodactyla) species Palembertina deplasi Weppe et al., 2020 from the Quercy area (Palembert, France; MP18-MP19) was erected with a misspelling in the species epithet. We propose a corrected replacement name: Palembertina desplasi.

The cainotheriid species Palembertina deplasi Weppe et al., 2020 was erected and described by dental and mandibular material from the Palembert locality (Quercy, SW France) dated of the late Eocene (MP18-MP19; Weppe et al., 2020). Palembertina deplasi is characterized by intermediate morphology between the “robiacinid” and the “derived cainotheriid” types, and allows for a better understanding of the evolution of the dental pattern of cainotheriids. This species was named for Claude Desplas, who helped to discover many fossil-yielding localities in the Quercy phosphorites. Unfortunately, the authors misspelled the name “Desplas” in the original publication and consequently the epithet of the new cainotheriid species dedicated to him in the article of Weppe et al. (2020). The name Palembertina desplasi is given here as a replacement name for P . deplasi Weppe et al., 2020. The holotype (left M2/, PAL 21) and paratypes (left dentary fragment with M/3, PAL 60; a left dentary fragment with P/4 and M/2, PAL 62; and a right isolated M/3, PAL 64) are maintained for the definition of the species.
