Abstract [en]

 We describe new carnivoran fossils from Kalodirr and Moruorot, two late Early

Miocene sites in the Lothidok Formation of West Turkana, Kenya. The fossils include a

new species of viverrid, Kichechia savagei  sp. nov., a new genus and species of felid,

Katifelis nightingalei  gen. et sp. nov., and an unidentified musteloid. We also report

new records of the amphicyonid Cynelos macrodon. These new fossils increase the

known diversity of African Early Miocene carnivorans and highlight regional differences

in Africa.
