Abstract [en]

Kanapoi is the earliest Pliocene site yet described in eastern Africa with a substantial carnivoran record. It includes eight species in as many genera, representing five families. The material is dominated by the hyaenid Parahyaena howelli n. sp., but also includes a new Enhydriodon  species, E. ekecaman, the lutrine cf. Torolutra sp., the felids Dinofelis petteri, Homotherium sp., and Felis sp., the herpestid Helogale sp., and the viverrid Genetta n. sp. The Kanapoi Carnivora includes the remains of the first post- Miocene radiation of endemic African Carnivora.
