CORMOHIPPARION AND HIPPARION (MAMMALIA, PERISSODACTYLA, EQUIDAE) FROM THE LATE NEOGENE OF FLORIDA
Richard C. Hulbert, Jr.*
ABSTRACT
Five species of Cormohipparion are recognized from the late middle Miocene to late Pliocene (late Barstovian through Blancan) of Florida. A small sample of isolated teeth collected from a late Barstovian horizon of the lower Bone Valley Formation, south-central Florida, represents Cormohipparion sp., cf. C. sphenodus. In the Clarendonian, a larger species of Cormohipparion, cf. C. occidentale, is represented by three isolated teeth, also from an older horizon of the Bone Valley Formation. The very late Clarendonian Love Site produced numerous dentitions of two species of Cormohipparion, one small-sized and one medium-sized, here referred to C. ingenuum and C. plicatile, respectively. The completeness of the referred material allows for new phylogenetic interpretations concerning these previously poorly known species described by Joseph Leidy over a century ago on isolated teeth. The first appearance of C. ingenuum was in the early Clarendonian of Texas and Florida, and it persisted in Florida until the late early Hemphillian, a duration of about five million years. It is also recorded from the early Hemphillian Gracias Fauna of Honduras. C. ingenuum is not the senior synonym of Nannippus lenticularis (Cope), as proposed by some authors, as the two share few characters but size. C. plicatile is limited to the late Clarendonian-early Hemphillian of Florida, but is usually the more common of the two at sites where both occur. The range of C. emsliei is extended to the early Hemphillian (ca. 7 Ma), based on its presence at the Moss Acres Racetrack Site. It persisted through the Blancan (to about 2.0 Ma), and is the youngest known representative of the genus in North America. These three species form a monophyletic group, Cormohipparion (Notiocradohipparion) n. subgen., united by their relatively very elongated muzzles. This clade was apparently limited to the Gulf Coastal Plain and Central America. Three major trends observed in Florida Cormohipparion over this ten million year period are increasing hypsodonty, increasing enamel complexity (in fossette plications, pli caballins, styles, and pli caballinids), and decreasing depth of the dorsal preorbital fossa.
Hipparion is rarely recorded from the late Miocene of Florida. Referable samples include those from the lower Bone Valley Formation (?Clarendonian), the Love Site, the Moss Acres Racetrack Site, and the Withlacoochee River 4A local fauna (late early Hemphillian). The latter two are among the youngest records of Hipparion from North America. They are all tentatively referred to the medium-sized species, Hipparion tehonense.

Cladistic analysis based on 58 dental and cranial characters suggests the following phylogenetic hypotheses: (1) the Tribe Hipparionini is monophyletic and contains a minimum of six North American genera and several species of uncertain generic affiliation; (2) Hipparion, Merychippus s.s., Nannippus, Cormohipparion, and Old World hipparionines form one monophyletic clade, the Hipparion-genus group; (3) Neohipparion, Pseudhipparion, and "Merychippus" coloradense form a second clade, the Neohipparion-gcnus group, which is the sister taxon of the Hipparion-genus group; (4) "Merychippus" goorisi (MacFadden and Skinner) is the sister taxon to Nannippus + Cormohipparion, but its uniquely derived facial region prevents it from being ancestral to either genus; and (5) Cormohipparion from Florida (Notiocradohipparion) is the sister taxon to C. occidentale + Old World "Cormohipparion" (i.e. Group 1 hipparionines).
RESUMEN
Se reconocen cinco especies de Cormohipparion del Mioceno medio tardio al Plioceno tardi'o (Barstoviano tardio al Blancano) de Florida. Una pequefia muestra de dientes aislados recogidos del horizonte Barstoviano tardio de la formacion Bon Valley inferior, centro-sur de Florida, representa Cormohipparion sp., cf. C. sphenodus. En el Clarendoniano, una especie mayor de Cormohipparion, cf. C. occidentale, se representa por tres dientes aislados, tambien de un horizonte antiguo de la formacion Bone Valley. El sitio Love, Clarendoniano muy tardio, produjo mucho material de dos especies de Cormohipparion, una pequefia y una mediana, se asignan aqui a C. ingenuum u C. plicatile, respectivamente. El material excelente permite nuevas interpretaciones filogeneticas de estas especies descritas por Joseph Leidy hace mas de un siglo a base de dientes aislados, y hasta ahora poco conocidas. La primera ocurrencia de C. ingenuum fue en el Clarendoniano temprano de Texas y Florida, y la especie perduro en Florida hasta el Ilemphilliano temprano tardio, una duracion de aproximadamente cinco millones de afios. Tambien se conoce de la fauna Gracias Hemphilliano temprano de Honduras. Cormohipparion ingenuum no es sinonimo mayor de Nannippus lenticularis (Cope), como han sugerido algunos autores, pues las dos comparten pocas caracteristicas fuera del tamafio. Cormohipparion plicatile se limita al Clarendoniano tardio Hemphilliano temprano de Florida, pero es la mas frecuente en sitios donde se encuentran las dos. La ocurrencia de C. emsliei se extiende al Hemphilliano temprano (aprox. 7 Ma), basado en su presencia en el sitio Moss Acres Racetrack. Perduro por el Blancano (a aprox. 2.0 Ma), y es el representative mas joven del genera conocido en Norte America. Estas tres especies forman un grupo monofiletico, Cormohipparion (Notiocradohipparion) subgenera nuevo, unidos por sus hocicos relativamente muy largos. Este grupo aparentemente se limito a la planicie costera del golfo y America Central. Tres tendencias importantes observadas en Cormohipparion de Florida durante diez millones de afios son aumento en hipsodontia, aumento en complejidad del esmalte dental, y reducci6n en la profundidad de la fosa preorbital dorsal.
Hipparion se ha encontrado poco en el Mioceno tardio de Florida. Muestras incluyen las de la formacion Bone Valley inferior (Clarendoniano?), el sitio Love, el sitio Moss Acres Racetrack, y la fauna local del Rio Withlacoochee 4A (Hemphilliano tardio temprano). Las dos ultimas se cuentan entre los encuentros mas jovenes de Hipparion en Norte America. Todas se asignan tentativamente a la especie mediana, Hipparion tehonense.
Analisis cladistico basado en 58 caracteristicas dentales y craniales sugiere las sigientes hipotesis: (1) la tribu Hipparionini es monofiletica y contiene por lo menos seis generos norteamericanos y varias especies de position generica incierta; (2) Hipparion, Merychippus s.s, Nannippus, Cormohipparion, y los hipparioninos del viejo mundo forman un grupo monofiletico, el grupo de Hipparion; (3) Neohipparion, Pseudhipparion, y "Merychippus" goorisi (MacFadden y Skinner) forman el taxon hermano del grupo Hipparion; (4) "Merychippus"goorisi (MacFadden y Skinner) es el taxon hermano de Nannippus + Cormohipparion, pero por la estructura unica de su cara no puede ser antecesor de ninguno de ellos; y (5) Cormohipparion de Florida {Notiocradohipparion) es el taxon hermano de C. occidentale + "Cormohipparion" del viejo mundo (o sea hipparioninos de grupo 1).


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA 231
INTRODUCTION
This is one of several recently completed or planned studies describing fossil equids from the Late Neogene of the Gulf Coastal Plain of the southeastern United States. Previous studies have dealt with Dinohippus and Astrohippus (MacFadden 1986), Pseudhipparion (Webb and Hulbert 1986), Neohipparion (Hulbert 1987b), Calippus and Protohippus (Hulbert 1988a), and a new species of Cormohipparion (Hulbert 1988b). Future work will include studies of Nannippus (Hulbert in prep.) and post-cranial elements. Together, they will provide a modern revision of the Late Neogene Equinae from this important faunal province, as well as complementing and supplementing ongoing research on equids from other regions of North America. These studies will also aid intracontinental biostratigraphic correlation with radiometrically dated faunas from the western United States, and will allow greater understanding of equid evolution and paleoecology during a critical period of their history in North America.

Hippotherium ingenuum, the first equid and second fossil vertebrate species described from Florida, was named by Leidy (1885) based on two unassociated upper molars from Mixson's Bone Bed (Figs. 1, 2). During the subsequent century, opinions concerning the generic allocation of Leidy's taxon have varied considerably, and a number of equid populations from outside of Florida have been referred to it. Since Stirton (1940), it has most often been included in Nannippus. Hippotherium plicatile, also named by Leidy (1887), was based on an isolated tooth from the same locality and has had a similar complicated taxonomic history. Despite two periods of re-excavation at Mixson's Bone Bed, during the early 1910s by the Florida Geological Survey and the late 1930s and early 1940s by field crews financed by Childs Frick, additional topotypic material remained undescribed until very recently (MacFadden 1984). Compared to other sites in Florida of comparable age, equids were not especially diverse or common at Mixson's, and the limited amount of topotypic material hindered systematic study of these two species.
Three recently discovered sites in particular have proved crucial in unraveling the phylogenetic affinities of Leidy's species. The Love Site, located north of the town of Archer, Florida (about 18 km northwest of Mixson's; Fig. 2), was discovered in 1974 and excavated by field crews of the Florida State Museum until June 1981. Equids, with a minimum of over 300 individuals, were among the most common mammalian taxa recovered from the Love Site (Webb et al. 1981; Hulbert 1982). This study confirms that large numbers of upper and lower dentitions from the Love Site are referable to Leidy's two species, as was first noted by Jackson (1978), and later by MacFadden (1984).
FIGURE 1. Lateral (A) and occlusal (B) views of USNM 3306, the holotype left upper molar of Cormohipparion ingenuum Leidy (1885) from Mixson's Bone Bed, Levy County, Florida. This species was the first equid to be described from Florida, and only the second fossil mammal species to be named from the state. This study will demonstrate the validity of Leidy's species, and determine its phylogenetic position among North American hipparionines.

Their absence in the preliminary faunal list of Webb et al. (1981) is inexplicable. The Moss Acres Racetrack Site, located about 15 km southeast of Mixson's, is a late early Hemphillian locality notable for the presence of skulls and associated skeletons (Hulbert 1987b; 1988a). It was discovered, in 1984 and is still being worked. It has produced the two most complete mandibles described in this study. The Agricola Road Site contained the greatest concentration of terrestrial vertebrate specimens yet recovered from a

single quarry in the Bone Valley Formation, Polk County (Fig. 2). Discovered in 1987, it produced a rich record of early Clarendonian mammals from a period previously very poorly known in Florida. Specimens from these three sites, along with others from less productive localities, permit a detailed morphological and statistical reevaluation that demonstrates that both of Leidy's species should be referred to the recently described genus Cormohipparion.
The purposes of this study are: (1) to describe in stratigraphic sequence all material from Florida referable to Cormohipparion or Hipparion (in conjunction with Hulbert 1988b); (2) to compare this material with contemporaneous records from the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain and the Great Plains; (3) to determine if material from other regions of North America is referable to species described from Florida; and (4) to analyze the phylogenetic relationships of the Florida taxa, along with those from the Great Plains and the western United States, revising to some extent the results of MacFadden (1984).
Throughout this study, Cormohipparion and Hipparion are used following the definitions of Skinner, MacFadden and co-workers (e.g. Skinner and MacFadden 1977; Woodburne et al. 1981; MacFadden 1984). These definitions result from a hypothesized phylogeny in which two separate clades of North American hipparionines are recognized as sister groups of two distinct clades of Old World hipparionines. Implicit in this hypothesis is that there were at least two separate immigrations into Asia of New World hipparionines. Other workers have proposed alternate phylogenies; while generally agreeing with Woodburne et al. (1981) that "Cormohipparion" is the probable sister group of an early immigrant wave into Asia, they suggest instead that Old World hipparionines are essentially monophyletic (e.g. Bernor et al. 1980; Forsten 1968, 1984; Bernor and Hussain 1985; Bernor 1985). Among these workers, there is no current agreement as to whether this monophyletic clade includes just one genus, or several genera. This in turn has nomenclatural ramifications on New World taxa (cf. Bernor and Hussain 1985:39). For example, if New World Cormohipparion (sensu MacFadden 1984) is "ancestral" to Old World Hipparion s.s., then Cormohipparion could be considered a junior synonym of Hipparion, and New World Hipparion (sensu MacFadden 1980,1984) would belong in another (unnamed) genus. Or, if Old World hipparionines are divided among several genera, there is still the possibility that Hippotherium and/or Sivalhippus are senior synonyms of Cormohipparion (Bernor and Hussain 1985). Only a complete phylogenetic analysis of Old World hipparionines, which has yet to be done, can resolve these nomenclatural problems. It is also uncertain which of the Eurasian genus-level names that have gone unused for about 80 years, such as Hippotherium, should be considered nomina oblita. As the scope of this report concerns taxa with no direct involvement with these unresolved questions, I

have elected to consistently use one of several possible nomenclatural alternatives. A much less satisfactory approach would be to group these taxa into a single genus (Hipparion si), and ignore their phylogenetic interrelationships.

MATERIALS AND METHODS
Samples of equid crania, mandibles, and isolated teeth representing Hipparion and Cormohipparion from the five major Late Neogene localities or faunas of Florida (Agricola Road, Love, McGehee Farm, Mixson's, and Upper Bone Valley; Fig. 2) were examined and analyzed quantitatively. Specimens from other, less productive sites were also studied, and often measured, but were not subjected to statistical analysis because of small sample sizes. As in previous studies (Webb and Hulbert 1986; Hulbert 1987b, 1988a), lack of relatively complete cranial material, and a near complete absence of associated post-cranial elements necessitated a heavy reliance on dental characters to study this group of Gulf Coastal Plain equids. Important comparative material examined included samples of C. sphenodus from the Barstovian of Colorado and Nebraska (in the F:AM and AMNH collections); C. occidentale from the Clarendon Fauna of Donley County, Texas (PPM and F:AM), the Lapara Creek Fauna of Bee County, Texas (TMM), and the Xmas-Kat Channel Quarries of north-central Nebraska (F:AM); H. tehonense from the Tejon Hills Fauna, San Joaquin Valley, California (UCMP), the Lapara Creek Fauna (TMM), and the Clarendon Fauna (PPM and F:AM); and H.forcei from the Black

Six characters were measured on each upper cheektooth, and seven on each lower tooth, following the procedures described by Hulbert (1987b, 1988a) and illustrated in Figure 3. Each measurement was taken to the nearest 0.1 mm with dial calipers. Plication counts of fossettes follow the procedures of MacFadden (1984). Standard equid dental terminology (e.g. Stirton 1941; MacFadden 1984, fig. 4) is generally followed (Fig. 3A, 3C). The term "ectostylid," widely used in the literature of Old World hipparionines, is employed rather than Stirton's (1941) "protostylid." The latter term is used instead to refer to the structure called the parastylid by Stirton (1941). The rudimentary first upper cheektooth is referred to as the DPI, as it erupts with the deciduous rather than the permanent premolar series (Skinner and Taylor 1967). "Hipparionine" collectively refers to the genera Neohipparion, Pseudhipparion, Merychippus s.s., Nannippus, Hipparion, Cormohipparion, and Old World derivatives. Definitions of North American Land Mammal Ages follow Tedford et al. (1988).

Revised Generic Diagnosis. Medium- to large-sized hipparionine equids. Prominent, oval or tear-drop shaped, pocketed, generally deep DPOF with well developed, usually continuous anterior rim; other margins also well defined; positioned far anteriorly from orbit; advanced lineages in both Old and New World independently reduce DPOF. Cheekteeth hypsodont, well cemented. Upper cheekteeth generally with large DPI retained with adult dentition; protocone isolated (except P2) until late wear, usually oval or elongate-oval in shape. Protocone spur absent or rudimentary. P2 anterostyle well developed and P2 much longer than other cheekteeth. Pli caballin prominent, often bifurcated, multiple, or both; fossettes moderately to very complicated, with persistent plis protoloph and hypostyle, and well developed prefossette loop; styles strong, parastyle frequently grooved. Lower cheekteeth have large, well separated, oval or angular metaconids and metastylids; usually well developed protostylids (absent on p2); plicated paralophids and isthmuses frequent; pli caballinids variably developed, become more prominent and persistent in

younger species. Paraconid of p2 relatively expanded. Ectostylids prominent on dp2-dp4.
Chronologic and Geographic Distribution in North America.-- Late Barstovian through early Hemphillian of West Coast, Great Basin, and Great Plains; late Barstovian through late Blancan of Gulf Coastal Plain; early Hemphillian of Central America.
Discussion.-- In his recent review, MacFadden (1984) recognized three North American species of Cormohipparion, C. goorisi, C. sphenodus, and C. occidentale. C. ingenuum was placed in Nannippus, and C. plicatile, while recognized as a distinct species, could not be referred unambiguously to any genus by MacFadden. More recently (Hulbert 1987a, 1988c; see also below), I determined that "Merychippus" goorisi was the sister taxon to both Nannippus and Cormohipparion, and excluded it from the latter genus. The three species described from Florida (C. ingenuum, C. plicatile, and C. emsliei) are referred to a new subgenus of Cormohipparion, described below.

Description and Discussion. In the mid-1970s, J. S. Waldrop and associates excavated from the banks of a dragline cut in the Phosphoria Mine a large sample of pre-Hemphillian terrestrial vertebrates from the Bone Valley District of south-central Florida. Two of the fossiliferous horizons, informally termed the Red and Gray Zones, contained late Barstovian and early Clarendonian vertebrates, respectively (Webb and Hulbert 1986). Both produced a medium-sized hipparionine referable to Cormohipparion. Although comparisons are limited by the small sample sizes, the specimens from the overlying Gray Zone are slightly more hypsodont and complex than Red Zone specimens. As the samples are too limited for statistical analysis, Tables 1 and 2 present measurements taken on relatively complete specimens. The population of Cormohipparion from the Gray Zone of the Phosphoria Mine matches the more numerous sample from the Agricola Road Site from the nearby Hookers Prairie Mine. They are both referred to C. ingenuum, and described below. Those from the Red Zone compare favorably in occlusal dimensions and crown height instead with data presented by Woodburne et al. (1981) for C. sphenodus. Additionally, the sample corresponds in almost every detail of enamel morphology of C sphenodus as described and illustrated by Woodburne et al. (1981) and MacFadden (1984). The protocone is oval or elongate-oval with a rudimentary spur in early wear; it is isolated from the protoloph in all specimens (Fig. 4A). The hypocone is oriented posterolingually and has a constricted connection to the metaloph. The posterior half of the prefossette and the anterior half of the postfossette are moderately complex, but less so than typical younger samples of Cormohipparion from Florida. In early wear-stages, the lower premolars have moderately developed pli caballinids, shallow ectoflexids, and numerous enamel plications. In later wear-stages (e.g. UF 28460), the ectoflexid penetrates the isthmus past the level of the base of the entoflexid. The protostylid, which comes into wear about 10 mm below the unworn occlusal surface, is at first isolated (Fig. 4B), but later connects with the protoconid and is a prominent feature. This is also typical for all younger species of Cormohipparion. A definite species referral is precluded by the limited nature of the sample. Instead of C. sphenodus, these teeth could possibly represent the common ancestor of C. plicatile and C. ingenuum. However, much more


242

complete material would be needed to conclusively demonstrate this hypothesis.
The Red Zone equid assemblage includes Cormohipparion sp., cf. C. sphenodus, Merychippus sp. near M. califomicus, Calippus proplacidus ( = C. francisi, see Hulbert 1988a), and Pliohippus sp. (Table 10). A late Barstovian age is indicated, but larger and more complete samples are required for a more precise age determination. Approximate equivalents among western faunas are the Cold Spring Fauna of Texas and the Devil's Gulch Fauna of Nebraska (Webb and Hulbert 1986).

Diagnosis.- Largest North American species of Cormohipparion, with toothrow lengths of 133-150 mm in middle wear-stages. Unworn MSCH of M12 54-60 mm. Deep, continuously well rimmed, keyhole-shaped DPOF.


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
243
More higher crowned cheekteeth than C. sphenodus or C. ingenuum. More complexly plicated fossettes than C. sphenodus, C. plicatile, and C. ingenuum (on average, at comparable wear-stages). Ectostylids on dp34 oval and larger than those of other North American species.
Description.- TMM 31081-844 is notable as the only cranial material of Cormohipparion known from the Gulf Coastal Plain preserving the entire pre-orbital region. The DPOF (on the better preserved right side) is teardrop shaped, about 60 mm long, and has a maximum dorsoventral height of about 30 mm. The anterior border is located above the P3, and the posterior border is above the M1-M2 contact. The pocketed, well rimmed fossa is located well anterior to the orbit with a preorbital bar length of about 57 mm (due to crushing and reconstruction with plaster this measurement is a rough estimate). For all important features, the facial region of TMM 31081-844 falls within the range of variation expressed by the large Hans Johnson Quarry sample of C. occidentale from the late Clarendonian of Nebraska (Skinner and MacFadden 1977). The size and complexity of the cheekteeth of TMM 31081-844 are equivalent to the dental features of the Lapara Creek sample of C. occidentale described in detail by Forsten (1975). MacFadden (1984a, fig. 134) was the first to illustrate a specimen of C. occidentale from this fauna, TMM 31081-619, a right maxillary fragment with P2-M1.
In the upper cheekteeth, Gulf Coastal Plain specimens of Cormohipparion occidentale display the following important features that reflect their close relationship with other referred samples of the species (notably those from the Clarendon and Xmas-Kat Faunas). Premolars are slightly longer and much wider than the molars, with well developed styles. In early wear, the parastyles of the P34 are slightly grooved. The fossettes are richly plicated; typically in premolars the anterior half of the prefossette has a deep, persistent, generally unbranched pli protoloph and zero to three smaller, less persistent accessory plications. The posterior half of the prefossette and the anterior half of the postfossette are of approximately equal complexity, with numerous (usually four or five, up to eight) plications apiece, several of which are usually deep and bifurcated. The pli hypostyle is usually deep, unbranched, and persistent; it is often (33% of examined specimens) accompanied by one or two additional small plications. In the M12, the fossettes are typically only slightly less complex, but the folds are not as deep and have fewer bifurcations. Both the pli protoloph and pli hypostyle are well developed, persistent, and have occasional accessory plications. Pli caballins are prominent, often multiple (60% of specimens examined) in P34, generally single in P2 and M1-M3. Protocones vary greatly in length, but are usually elongate-oval, and slightly longer than twice their width, very rarely with spur, except on P2. Protocones are isolated until very late wear-stages, again except for the P2 which generally connects the protocone during the moderate wear-stage. When compared with the Clarendon and Xmas-Kat populations of C. occidentale, the southern


244
BULLETIN FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM VOL. 33(5)
samples show slight differences in size (they are on average about 5% smaller), hypsodonty (unworn M12 MSCH is about 50-54 mm in the Lapara Creek sample, about 60 mm in the Clarendon and Xmas-Kat samples), and plication frequency. The Xmas-Kat sample is significantly more complicated than either of the two Texas populations. For example, pli caballins are multiple or bifurcated in 88% of the P34s (n = 66) and 55% of the M12s (n = 75). In complexity of fossette plications, the Xmas-Kat Quarries population of Cormohipparion is exceeded among North American hipparionines only by the late Hemphillian sample of C. emsliei (Table 7).
In the lower cheekteeth, the Lapara Creek sample is characterized by rounded to slightly flattened labial protoconid and hypoconid borders (but not to the degree of Neo. affine); large, oval, subequal metaconids and metastylids; and relatively large protostylids that are often isolated from the protoconid during early wear. Pli caballinids are variably developed on the p2-p4; prominent in early wear-stages, retreating with wear until disappearing during late middle wear-stages. They are at best rudimentary on the ml-m3, and then only appearing in very early wear-stages. Lower cheekteeth are frequently plicated (Table 5); these are best expressed during early and early moderate wear-stages. The ectoflexids on the premolars generally penetrate to a level about equal to the base of the metaflexid, although there are some with deeper and some with shallower ectoflexids. In the molars, ectoflexids are deep and completely divide the isthmus. Deciduous lower premolars have wider and deeper ectoflexids than permanent premolars, rudimentary pli caballinids, and relatively large, tall ectostylids that soon appear on the occlusal surface after the onset of wear (e.g. TMM 31081-456, 31081-7).
Discussion. Leidy described this species on five associated upper cheekteeth. Although of uncertain stratigraphic provenience (Skinner and Taylor, 1967), the holotype displays a number of characters than unites it with referred populations from the Lapara Creek, Clarendon, and Xmas-Kat Faunas (and others listed by MacFadden 1984a: 163). These include size (Table 1, relatively large), elongated protocones without spurs, well developed pli caballins that tend toward branching on the premolars, and complex fossette plications (Table 7). Prior to the naming of Cormohipparion by Skinner and MacFadden (1977), the species occidentale was routinely referred to the genus Neohipparion (e.g. Stirton 1940). While there are similarities between C. occidentale and N. affine (the type species of Neohipparion), especially in protocone shape and overall size, there are major differences in DPOF depth and degree of rimming, relative position of the DPOF and lacrimal bone, fossette complexity, shape of the labial borders of the protoconid and hypoconid, and the development of the ectostylid in deciduous premolars (Skinner and MacFadden 1977; Skinner et al. 1977; MacFadden 1984a; Hulbert 1987b). These serve not only to distingiush the two as distinct species, but support a phylogenetic hypothesis that they represent separate


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
245
genera. With the recognition of a separate subgenus within Cormohipparion (named below), the clade containing the genoholotype C. occidentale automatically becomes the nominate subgenus C. (Cormohipparion). Based on the phylogenetic analysis presented below, that clade does not include any North American species besides C. occidentale, but does contain some Old World hipparionines. C. sphenodus is not a member of either recognized subgenus. Instead of naming a third, monotypic subgenus for it, I prefer to consider C. sphenodus a plesion of subgeneric rank.
MacFadden (1984:90) synonymized Neohipparion affine and N. dolichops. The latter species was named by Gidley (1906) on a maxilla (AMNH 10865) and complete mandible (AMNH 10832) from Big Spring Canyon, South Dakota. Numerous topotypes were described by Gregory (1942) as 'TV." occidentale. Based on the dental differences described above, these specimens suggest that N. dolichops should be synonymized with C. occidentale rather than N. affine, as these two species are presently used. This synonymy is of more interest than it first appears. As the holotype of C. occidentale lacks stratigraphic and locality data, and consists only of upper cheekteeth, some workers at the 1981 AMNH Hipparionine Systematics Symposium suggested that it might be an inadequate type. If true, then Gidley's 'TV." dolichops would be the next available name for this widespread species.
Although widespread and very abundant throughout the western half of the United States during the Clarendonian, C. occidentale is as yet only provisionally recognized from Florida, on the basis of but three isolated teeth. These specimens clearly document the presence in Florida of a relatively large species of Cormohipparion in the middle Miocene. The occlusal dimensions of the three teeth (Table 1) fall within the OR of both C. plicatile and C. occidentale. Based on biogeographic grounds, a reference to the former would seem more likely. However, several features indicate closer affinities with the latter, including multiple plis protoloph on UF 28607 and UF 102552, very complex and deep internal fossette plications on all three (considering their advanced wear-stages, this is especially important), and the elongate protocones with flattened lingual borders. The protocone of UF 28607 is not as elongate as the others, but it does have a flattened lingual border, and its length (6.9) falls within the OR of PRL for the Lapara Creek sample of C. occidentale (6.0-9.8 mm). The PRL of UF 102553 (8.8 mm) is well outside the OR for C. plicatile (Table 3), which is based on a very large sample size. Therefore, pending recovery of additional, more complete samples, a tentative reference to C. occidentale appears to be the most appropriate referral for these specimens. The age of these specimens cannot be determined exactly, but it is almost surely pre-late Hemphillian. None was collected in situ with other taxa in a biostratigraphic context, nor were teeth referable to C. occidentale recovered from the rich, early Clarendonian Agricola Road Site. Their age is most likely early Clarendonian, as terrestrial and marine


246

vertebrates of that age are frequently recovered from the Hookers Prairie and Phosphoria mines in the Bone Valley Region.

Type Species. Cormohipparion (Notiocradohipparion) ingenuum (Leidy),
1885.
Included Species.- C. (N.) ingenuum (Leidy), 1885; C. (N.) plicatile (Leidy), 1887; C. (N.) emsliei Hulbert, 1988.
Etymology.- notio, Greek for southern, krado, Greek for branch, and hipparion, Greek for small horse. In reference to both the phylogenetic and geographic position of the subgenus.
Chronologic and Geographic Distribution.- Early Clarendonian through late Blancan of Florida; early Clarendonian of south Texas; early Hemphillian of Honduras; late Hemphillian of Louisiana.
Diagnosis. Relatively small- to moderate-sized Cormohipparion (UTRL and ltrl between 112 and 135 in moderate wear-stages), distinguished from all other North American Cormohipparion by an extremely elongated muzzle. Lower diastema length equals 70% or greater of ltrl. Ectostylids absent from permanent lower cheekteeth.
Discussion.- These three species comprise a monophyletic clade that persisted for at least 9 million years (ca. 2 to 11 Ma). As presently recognized, the subgenus was limited to regions bordering the Gulf of Mexico: Florida, Louisiana, Texas, and Honduras. However, its range could have extended much further in the eastern United States, as late Miocene deposits are very poorly known throughout that region.

Revised Diagnosis. Small-sized Cormohipparion with toothrow lengths of 112-123 mm in middle wear-stages. Unworn MSCH of P2 about 37 mm and M12 about 49 mm. Smaller than C. sphenodus, C. occidentale, or C. plicatile. Less unworn crown height than C. occidentale, C. plicatile, or C. emsliei. Ventral border of DPOF less distinctly rimmed than C. occidentale or C. plicatile, but fossa better developed than in C. emsliei. Lower permanent and deciduous second premolars with an enamel fold projecting from the metaconid (or less frequently the paraconid) that in late wear-stages often closes off the metaflexid into an isolated fossettid. Relatively poorly developed pli caballinid on p2-p4, usually absent on ml-m3.
Description. Cranial material completely exhibiting the facial region is unknown for C. ingenuum. Only two referable specimens (UF 32300 from the Love Site and UF 17204 from the Withlacoochee River 4A locality) preserve portions of the face; each includes only the ventral-most part of the DPOF. On the more complete specimen (UF 17204, Fig. 5A), the ventral portion of the DPOF consists of a moderately deep impression (at least 11 mm) with an unrimmed, sloping ventral border located about 33 mm above the alveolar border of the P4. The border is located just posterior to the infraorbital foramen. On UF 32300, the ventral-most part of the DPOF is located about 37 mm dorsal to the alveolar border of the P3.
Summary statistics of measurements on upper and lower cheekteeth are listed in Tables 3 and 4. The following dental descriptions are based on the largest quarry sample of the species, that from the Love Site, although they generally apply to all referred populations. Chronoclinal differences with older and younger samples are noted in the discussion section. Frequencies (in

percent) given for character states pertain only to the Love Site sample. As is typical for Cormohipparion, the P2 is the longest upper cheektooth, with a well developed anterostyle (Figs. AC, 6A, 9A). Upper premolars are characterized by elongate-oval protocones, often with straight or concave lingual borders, that are isolated until late wear (except P2), grooved parastyles for the upper third of the crown, well developed pli caballins and complex fossette borders (Figs. 4D, 5B, 6A, 6B). In the Love Site sample, half (26 of 52 observed specimens) of all P34s contain bifurcated or multiple pli caballins; this includes almost all specimens in early and moderate wear-stages. Most (75%, n = 51) of the P34s have a single, deep, unbranched pli protoloph on the anterior half of the prefossette; the remainder have an additional one to three smaller plications labial to it. The pli protoloph is lost only in very late wear-stages. The posterior half of the prefossette is richly plicated, the large prefossette loop is secondarily plicated with deep folds in early wear, and there are usually four to six total infoldings of varying depth and complexity. The anterior half of the postfossette is somewhat less complex, generally with between two and five folds (96% of observed specimens); the pli postfossette is usually bifurcated, as are one or two of the other plications in early wear-stages. A single, unbranched pli hypostyle is found on most of the P34 (92%, n = 50); it is rarely absent or with accessory folds. The hypoconal groove remains open throughout wear. Unworn or slightly worn MSCH of P2s range from 36 to 38

mm; examples of unworn or slightly worn P34s are rare, but their MSCHs are about 45 mm.
Upper molars are noticeably smaller in occlusal area than P34 (Tables 1, 3), with less well developed styles and generally with shorter, more oval protocones (Fig. 6A, 6C). The lingual border of the protocone is usually convex or straight; occasionally concave, especially in early wear-stages. Pli caballins, while well developed, are more likely to be single (76%, n = 55, Love Site sample) than branched or multiple (18%), but are retained until very late wear-stages (Figs. 5B, 9H). The anterior half of the prefossette most often has a single pli protoloph (56%, n = 55), while 27% also have small accessory plications. The posterior half of the prefossette consists of only a moderately developed (relative to that of the P34) prefossette loop and generally four to six plications. These are smaller and shallower than their counterparts on the P34, and have a greater tendency to disappear with wear (Fig. 9H). The anterior half of the postfossette most often has between three and five plications, and the pli postfossette is often bifurcated in early and moderate wear. The posterior half of the postfossette generally (84%, n = 50) has a single, shallow pli hypostyle (Figs. 6A, 9E-9G). Unworn MSCH of M12 varies from 47 to 51 mm.
Upper deciduous premolars resemble their permanent counterparts in many respects. The fossettes are richly plicated, with persistent pli protoloph and pli hypostyle, the pli caballin is multiple in early and moderate wear-stages, and the lingual border of the protocone is usually straight. The hypoconal groove is deep and persistently open. The styles are very well developed. The protocone often bears a spur in early wear-stages, this is soon lost in the DP34, but connects the protocone with the protoloph in moderate wear-stages of the DP2. They are difficult to distinguish from DPs of Neohipparion trampasense, but differ in that the DP2 parastyle is not recurved, and the fossettes are transversely wider. Unworn MSCH of the DP2 is 17-19 mm, that of the DP34 is 20-22 mm.
Only one mandible of Cormohipparion ingenuum with a complete symphysis is known (UF 32170, Table 4), as most rami are broken between the canine and the p2. The diastema length (82.3 mm) of UF 32170 is relatively long (73% of ltrl), a synapomorphy of the members of the subgenus Notiocradohipparion. Three other Love Site rami referred to C. ingenuum (UF 32154, 32172, and 32198) have nearly complete symphyses, but are broken such that the ldl can not be measured. They all are proportioned similar to UF 32170, indicating that the diastema length of the latter specimen is not unusually large for the species.
Lower cheekteeth of C. ingenuum demonstrate many phylogenetically important features. They generally resemble lower dentitions of other species of Cormohipparion, except for their smaller size (Tables 2, 4, 5). Lower premolars are characterized by: rounded labial borders; large metaconids and

253
metastylids equal in size and well separated from each other, especially by an anterolingual extension of the entoflexid; ectoflexids that generally partially penetrate the isthmus; and well developed protostylids (Figs. 7, 8, 10A, 10B). As is typical in Cormohipparion, the ectoflexid depth is shallower on the p2 than the p34 (Fig. 7A); infrequently, most commonly in p4s, the isthmus may be deeply divided. In early wear-stages, isthmus and paralophid plications are common, and a small pli caballinid is usually present (Table 5, Figs. 8B, 10B). With wear, the ectoflexid deepens, and the plications and pli caballinid fade (Fig. 7B). Protostylids are slightly less prominent than in C. plicatile. As is usual in Cormohipparion, they first appear as isolated structures, but quickly connect to the protoconid. On most p2s (and dp2s), there is an anterolabial plication that emanates from the metaconid (Figs. 7A, 8A). Infrequently, the plication originates instead from the paraconid, and projects posteriorly, or both plications can be present (e.g. Figs. 8B, 10A). The plication first appears on the occlusal surface during early to middle wear-stages, although the crown height at which it becomes exposed varies. In later wear-stages, it commonly connects the metaconid and paraconid, isolating a portion of the metaflexid as a fossettid (Figs. 7B, 8A, 8C). While similar plications are occasionally found on p2s of other species of Cormohipparion and other genera, in no other sample is its appearance so frequent (except for C. emsliei). Unworn mcch of p2 is about 35 mm, and 43-47 mm for the p34.
The lower molars of Cormohipparion ingenuum are similar in morphology to those described below for C. plicatile, but have shorter unworn crown heights and are much smaller (Tables 2, 4; Figs. 4E, 7, 10A-10E). Pli caballinids are very rare and if present occur only in slightly worn individuals (ml in Fig. IOC). Plications on the isthmus and paralophid are common (Table 5), especially in slightly worn teeth. Unworn or slightly worn ml2 mcch is about 50 mm.
Lower deciduous premolars of Cormohipparion ingenuum have relatively shallow ectoflexids; elongated metaconids, metastylids, and entoconids; and moderately developed pli caballinids in early wear. With wear, however, the ectoflexids deepen, the metaconids and metastylids become more oval, and the pli caballinids are lost or become rudimentary (Fig. 10C). In late wear-stages, relatively small, generally elongate-oval ectostylids appear on the occlusal surface (Figs. 8A, 10C). They are not as prominent as in C. emsliei, C. occidentale, or C. plicatile, and can be especially rudimentary on the dp2. Unworn dp34 mcch is about 21-23 mm.
Discussion.- Four major topics are presented in this section: (1) a review of previous phylogenetic hypotheses regarding "Hippotherium" ingenuum Leidy; (2) a demonstration that the holotype of "H." ingenuum contains sufficient characters to unambiguously associate it with one, and only one, species; (3) a discussion of the phylogenetic relationships of this species; and (4) a description of the geographic distribution and chronoclinal variation

observed in the referred populations of this taxon. The generic affinities of "H." ingenuum have remained enigmatic primarily due to the paucity of topotypic material. This has led to a number of equid populations from the western United States being incorrectly considered conspecific with it. The newly referred samples described here for the first time give an accurate representation of the size and variation of its upper and lower cheekteeth and at least a partial indication of its facial morphology. These combine to suggest a new generic assignment for "H." ingenuum and to falsify all previous hypotheses.
In his initial, brief descriptions of "Hippotherium" ingenuum and "H." plicatile, Leidy (1885; 1887) made no attempt to compare them with other taxa, except for "H." venustum, an inadequately known species from South Carolina. The holotype of the latter is lost, and it is best regarded as a nomen dubium (MacFadden 1984:126). Cope (1889) synonymized "H." ingenuum with "H."




HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
257
gratum without comment, and Lucas (in Leidy and Lucas 1896) and Hay (1902) followed this synonymy. Pseudhipparion gratum is now known to differ greatly from "H." ingenuum in size, facial morpholgy, and enamel pattern (Webb 1969a; Webb and Hulbert 1986). Leidy's (1885) referral of ingenuum to the genus Hippotherium reflected no particular phylogenetic significance. During this period, all hipparionine and many merychippine species were placed in Hippotherium, a name then considered valid for most if not all Eurasian and North American hipparionines (e.g. Cope 1889). Starting about 1900, Hipparion replaced Hippotherium as the commonly used genus for hipparionine equids (e.g. Hay 1902).
Gidley (1907) resurrected Leidy's species from Cope's synonymy, and it has subsequently been considered a valid species. Gidley's use of the binomen "Hipparion" ingenuum did have phylogenetic significance, however, as he felt that "H." ingenuum (along with "H." plicatile and "H." venustum) "...belong to an American branch of the Hipparion group of the Old World" (Gidley 1907:906). Gidley's separation of hipparionines into two genera, Neohipparion (for New World species) and Hipparion (primarily for Old World species), was not accepted by his contemporaries Matthew and Osborn (see e.g. Osborn 1918:173), who continued to refer all hipparionines to a single, broadly defined genus. Matthew (1924) concluded that the Miocene hipparionines named by Leidy from Florida and South Carolina (including "H." ingenuum) were not especially related to Old World species, a view also endorsed by Simpson (1930). Matthew and Stirton (1930:354) and Simpson (1930:188) placed "H." ingenuum in Matthew's (1926) subgenus Nannippus. Stirton (1940) raised Nannippus to the status of genus, and included "H." ingenuum in his listing of species of Nannippus. None of these authors stated any specific reasons for this referral, but presumably it was based on the relatively small size of the holotype (Table 1). Most subsequent references to the species have been to "Nannippus" ingenuus (e.g. Quinn 1955; Forsten 1975; MacFadden 1984).
Large samples of Clarendonian and early Hemphillian equids are now known from Florida. Four species of medium- to large-sized hipparionines (UTRL between 115 and 140 mm) are present; as the oldest available name, Cormohipparion ingenuum should apply to one of them. Two, although of similar size as the holotype of C. ingenuum, are distinguished from it primarily on qualitative grounds. One, referred to Neohipparion trampasense by MacFadden (1984) and Hulbert (1987b), differs in its more elongated protocone, narrower fossettes, and stronger metastyle. Hipparion sp, cf. H. tehonense, described below, differs in its rounded lingual protocone margin, simpler fossettes, and weaker pli caballin. The holotype of C. ingenuum (and that of C. plicatile) falls within the observed range of enamel morphology of the two remaining populations, which are very similar to each other and are distinguished primarily by size. That the two do in fact represent distinct species is emphasized by differences in DPOF morphology, diastema length, p2

morphology, and unworn crown height. However, the only significant difference between isolated, worn upper cheekteeth is size.
For Cormohipparion ingenuum and C. plicatile to both be valid, distinct species, it is necessary to show: (1) that two different-sized populations of Cormohipparion exist at Mixson's Bone Bed and other nearby localities; (2) that the holotype of C. ingenuum uniquely matches upper cheekteeth of the smaller-sized population in size and morphology; and (3) that the holotype of C. plicatile matches upper cheekteeth of the larger-sized population. If only a single population exists, or if the two match with the same population, then C. plicatile must be considered a junior synonym of the older name, C. ingenuum. If one (or both) can be shown to be specifically undiagnostic by falling within the observed range of variation of more than a single species, then it should be considered a nomen dubium. Leidy and all subsequent authors have correctly identified the type of C. ingenuum (USNM 3306, Fig. 1) as a true molar. However, since its initial description, the holotype tooth of C. plicatile (USNM 3292) has also been described as a "molar" (Leidy 1887:310; Osborn 1918:192; MacFadden 1984:170). Leidy used the term to refer to both true molars and premolars. Leidy and Lucas (1896:50) described USNM 3292 as a molar, "...probably the third..," presumably a reference to a P4. There are several features of the specimen that indicate that it is indeed a premolar, and not a molar. These include the relatively large and widely open parastyle and mesostyle, and the complex pli caballin. Most importantly, the mesostyle angles anteriorly in labial view when the occlusal surface is face down, a distinguishing characteristic of P34s and not M12s (Bode 1931). That the holotype of C. plicatile is a premolar is important, because the size difference between the holotypes of C. plicatile and C. ingenuum (Table 1) might merely reflect the typical significant size differences between P34s and M12s of Connohipparion. The range in size and CV of the combined sample are greater than that observed in other single-species quarry or faunal populations (Table 6), strongly suggesting the presence of more than a single species. Frequency distributions of occlusal and basal crown dimensions (Figs. 11, 12) are bimodal, but do indicate an appreciable amount of overlap between the two populations. Much of the apparent overlap in APL is lessened when the data are adjusted for crown height. The Mahalanobis distances between the two populations are significantly different (at p < 0.01) for both of the separately analyzed samples of P34 and M12. The holotype of C. ingenuum clearly clusters with the molars of the smaller-sized population both in univariate and multivariate analyses (Tables 1, 3; Figs. 11-13), indicating that the smaller sample should be referred to the older name. The holotype of C. plicatile, while within the range of only the larger-sized population for TRW and BAPL (Tables 1, 3; Fig. 11D, 11F), has a relatively small APL (19.7 mm) that is within the observed range of both populations (Table 3; Fig. 11B). Linear discriminant analysis separates the two species with very little overlap

FIGURE 13. Results of canonical discriminant analysis between Cormohipparion ingenuum (shaded) and C. plicatile (not shaded) using four variables, APL, BAPL, TRW, and PRL. Variables standardized to x = 0 and 5 = 1 before analysis. Separate analyses performed for a sample of combined upper first and second molars (A) and a sample of upper third and fourth premolars (B). Sample sizes are, for C. ingenuum, 48 premolars and 55 molars; for C. plicatile, 110 premolars and 107 molars. Histograms show distribution of canonical scores; actual results produced no overlap for the premolars, and only three molars were "misidentified" (i.e. discriminant analysis would assign them to the other species). The holotypes of both species were included in the analysis (their scores indicated by arrows), and each fell within the OR of its respective population. The results are consistent with there being two morphospecies of Cormohipparion present in the late Miocene of Florida.
and places USNM 3292 with the larger sample (Fig. 13). Thus, the link between USNM 3292 and the larger-sized population, while somewhat more uncertain than that of the type of C. ingenuum and the smaller-sized population, is reasonable. Also, the best matches for the peculiar fossette morphology of USNM 3292 are found in the larger-sized population (e.g. UF 17211, Fig. 16B). The conditions for validation of both C. ingenuum and C. plicatile set forth above are thus apparently met, although the holotype of C. plicatile is atypical for certain characters relative to the majority of specimens referred to that species. These are judged to reflect individual variation rather than species-level differences.
Qualitative analyses of the dental material described above indicate that "Hippotherium" ingenuum is more closely related to C. sphenodus and C. occidentale (excluding other species from Florida) than to species from any other hipparionine genus from North America, and that it can be referred to Cormohipparion sensu MacFadden (1984). C. ingenuum shares the following features with C. sphenodus and C. occidentale which in combination serve to distinguish them from other North American hipparionine genera: high, well developed ectostylids on deciduous lower premolars; lower permanent

premolars with moderately reduced ectoflexid depth and moderate pli caballinids in early wear-stages; high frequency of plicated isthmuses and paralophids; strong protostylids on p3-m3 and dp34; p2 and P2 much longer than p34 and P34 with expanded paraconids and anterostyles, respectively; oval or elongate-oval protocones isolated until late wear-stages; and highly complex and intricately plicated fossettes and pli caballins until at least middle wear-stages. While some of these character states evolved independently in other hipparionine genera, in combination they support the referral of ingenuum to Cormohipparion (see also phylogenetic section below). This assignment can be tested with the discovery of more complete material, especially well preserved skulls.
References to C. ingenuum outside of Florida have been relatively infrequent. Quinn (1955:73) listed both Nannippus (ehonensis and N. ingenuum [sic] as occurring in the Lapara Creek Fauna of the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain. Forsten (1975) later referred the entire sample of medium-sized hipparionines from both the Lapara Creek and Clarendon faunas to Nannippus cf. ingenuum. She gave no specific reasons for her referral, and presented no comparisons with material from Florida. MacFadden (1980; 1984) referred the same population from the Clarendon Fauna to H. tehonense, and a portion of the Lapara Creek sample is also referable to this species of Hipparion. Most of the other specimens from the Lapara Creek Fauna included in "Nannippus cf. ingenuum" by Forsten (1975) are referable instead to Nannippus s.s. (Hulbert 1987a). Only two specimens from Texas appear to represent C. ingenuum, TMM 31204-1 and 31081-501. Although other Lapara Creek specimens might belong to this taxon, they are isolated teeth that are best regarded as specifically and generically indeterminant. It is worth noting that this is a rare (perhaps unique) instance of Quinn (1955) underestimating the taxonomic diversity of a group of Gulf Coastal Plain equids.
MacFadden (1984:132) synonymized "Nannippus" ingenuus and A^. lenticularis (a late Hemphillian species particularly well known from the Coffee Ranch, Edson, and Uptegrove localities of the Great Plains) "...based on overall similarity in size, crown height, and dental pattern... ." This synonymy, if valid, would extend the range of C. ingenuum north of the Gulf Coastal Plain to Nebraska. However, examination of large numbers of individuals of both taxa fails to substantiate MacFadden's synonymy. While of similar size ("H." ingenuum is slightly larger on average, but observed ranges of tooth length and width overlap), there are numerous important differences between the two. In C. ingenuum, a moderately developed DPOF is located posterior to the infraorbital foramen. In A^. lenticularis, the posterior cheek region does not contain a fossa, but according to MacFadden (1984:130) there is a small fossa located anterior to the infraorbital foramen. This observation is based on a single specimen, RAM 113731. I believe that this feature is an artifact of the preservation and/or preparation of this particular specimen, and that most of

what has been interpreted as a fossa is the exposed inner wall of a maxillary sinus. In any event, the facial regions of the two are different, even with our presently inadequate knowledge of the cranial features of both species. Significant dental differences between the two taxa are:
1. Unworn crown height of upper and lower third and fourth premolars of C. ingenuum is about 45 mm, of first and second molars about 50 mm. In N. lenticularis, unworn P34 crown height is about 50 mm, and 57 mm for M12.
2. In C. ingenuum, the P2 and p2 are much longer than the other premolars, with well developed anterostyles and paraconids, respectively. In N. lenticularis, they are relatively short, with poorly developed anterostyles and paraconids. The former is characteristic of Cormohipparion and Neohipparion, the latter condition is found in Nannippus and H. tehonense. A reduced anterostyle is a derived character state for hipparionines (see below).
3. In C. ingenuum, pli caballins are well developed, frequently bifurcated or multiple, and persistent throughout wear. In N. lenticularis, pli caballins are at best moderately developed, not branched or multiple, and are often absent or lost with wear (e.g. RAM 111731, MacFadden 1984, Fig. 98D).
4. In C. ingenuum, fossette plications are very complex, often deep and bifurcating. In N. lenticularis, fossette plications are shallow and usually simple, with a much greater tendency for the pli hypostyle to be absent.
5. In C. ingenuum, the lingual border of the protocone is often straight or concave, especially in premolars. In N. lenticularis, it is nearly always convex. The protocone also tends to connect to the protoselene much earlier in the premolars of N. lenticularis, at MSCHs as great as 25 mm.
6. In C. ingenuum, the protostylid is prominent and is isolated from the protoconid only for a short period of wear. In N. lenticularis, the protostylid is small, usually remains isolated from the protoconid until very late wear-stages, and is occasionally absent (see also Dalquest 1983).
7. In C. ingenuum, the metaconid of the p2 and dp2 typically have an anterolabial plication that closes off the metaflexid. In samples of A^. lenticularis, such structures are absent or very rare.
There are additional, minor, differences between the cheekteeth of the two taxa, but those listed (plus their respective cranial morphologies) suffice to indicate that they belong in separate species (and genera). MacFadden (pers. comm.) has suggested that the differences listed above represent chronoclinal variation, but in my opinion they are of greater magnitude than those observed between early and late populations of any other equid species with a long, well

documented chronologic range (e.g. Neohipparion trampasense or C. occidentale). Typically in those cases, younger populations show more advanced features than those observed in more rudimentary form in the older population. Samples of intermediate age are of intermediate grade. With regard to C. ingenuum and N. lenticularis, some of the features of the younger taxon (those numbered 3, 4, 5, and 7) are more primitive than those of the older. Others (2 and 6), which are derived in the younger population, are not observed in any rudimentary or incipient form in the older samples. N. lenticularis is best considered a distinct, valid species.
Cormohipparion ingenuum is known from three periods of time: early Clarendonian (ca. 10-11 Ma, Lapara Creek and late Agricola Faunas); latest Clarendonian-early Hemphillian (ca. 8-9 Ma, Love Site, McGehee Farm, Haile 19A, Mixson's, i.e. the Archer Fauna of Webb and Hulbert 1986); and late early Hemphillian (ca. 6-7 Ma, e.g. Port Manatee, Withlacoochee River 4A, 4X, and Dunnellon sites). The Honduran sample (see below) may date from either of the two latter periods. As might be expected in such a long-ranging taxon, some morphological differences exist between populations from different eras. Unlike those described above, the differences are minor, and more primitive states are observed only in older populations. Unfortunately, the youngest samples are the most poorly known; their small sample sizes prevent detailed analysis and permit only specific identification. However, detailed comparisons can be made between the cheekteeth of the oldest and intermediate populations.
The sample of Cormohipparion ingenuum from the Agricola Fauna (material from Hookers Prairie, Phosphoria, and Silver City mines in referred specimens listing) is clearly intermediate in size between C. ingenuum and C. plicatile from the Archer Fauna (Tables 1-4, Figs. 9, 10). This is the case for mean P34 and M12 APL, TRW, and BAPL. The sample of P2s from the older fauna is too small for reliable analysis. Mean p2, p34, and ml2 apl and bapl are also intermediate between average values for C. ingenuum and C. plicatile from the Love Site (Table 4), but are all nearer the means for C. ingenuum. Mean atw and ptw, however, are not statistically different from the Love Site sample of C. ingenuum for all lower cheekteeth. That the Agricola Fauna sample belongs to C. ingenuum and not C. plicatile nor their common ancestor is suggested by two characters. The shape of the lingual border of the protocone varies, but in 4 of 7 premolars and 8 of 12 molars it is straight or concave (Fig. 9C, 9D, 9F-9H). In the sample of p2s, 4 of 7 display a plicated metaconid on the occlusal surface (Fig. 10A), a much greater frequency than that state is observed in C. plicatile. Flattened labial protocone borders and plicated p2 metaconids are derived character states uniting C. ingenuum and C. emsliei (see below). Thus their appearance in the Agricola Fauna sample, although in lesser frequencies than observed in younger populations, suggests phylogenetic affinity with the C. ingenuum-C. emsliei clade. With their


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
265
toothrow lengths of 112-130 mm, C. ingenuum and C. emsliei are also smaller than their sister taxa in Cormohipparion, that have average toothrow lengths greater than 130 mm. The Agricola Fauna sample referred to C. ingenuum has toothrow lengths of about 120-125 mm (Table 4). This moderate size is most parsimoniously regarded as another synapomorphy uniting it with C. ingenuum. In a lineage decreasing in size with time, older populations will not unexpectedly be larger than younger ones. In a more simplistic but less parsimonious scenario, the Agricola Fauna sample could represent the common ancestor of C. ingenuum and C. plicatile. But this would require three reversals in the C. plicatile lineage to reacquire its primitive size, protocone shape, and p2 metaconid morphology. A more likely phylogenetic hypothesis suggests instead that the cladogenetic event that resulted in C. ingenuum and C. plicatile occurred prior to the early Clarendonian, and that there is a chronologic gap in the first appearance of C. plicatile of at least 2 million years. The preceding has emphasized the differences between the older and younger populations of C. ingenuum, rather than their similarities (Figs. 5-10). As an example of the latter, the Agricola Fauna sample includes several examples of unworn or slightly worn P34s, M12s, p34s, and ml2s. These demonstrate identical values for unworn MSCH and mcch as specimens from the Love Site, about 45 mm for P34 and p34, 50 mm for M12 and ml2.
Webb and Perrigo (1984) referred a sample of teeth from the Gracias Formation of Honduras to "Hipparion" plicatile. As they noted, in many respects this sample does compare favorably with Cormohipparion plicatile as defined in this study. However, the size of the specimens, as listed by Webb and Perrigo (1984:244), clearly indicates a referral instead to the smaller C. ingenuum (Tables 1, 2). The north-central Florida and Central American samples are remarkably similar, considering the geographic distance separating them. One difference is a slightly better developed pli caballinid in the Honduran sample. It is more persistent on some of the p2-p4 than is typical for the Florida sample, and even occurs on some molars. It is not nearly so well developed as in C. emsliei, however, nor does the Honduran sample have the derived stylar features and extreme fossette complexity observed in the Pliocene species from Florida (Hulbert 1988b). The relatively advanced nature of the Honduran sample of C. ingenuum emphasizes Webb and Perrigo's (1984) conclusion that the age of the Gracias Fauna is early Hemphillian rather than late Clarendonian. The other major study of the Gracias Fauna (Olson and McGrew 1940) also recognized a hipparionine, which was referred to Neohipparion montezuma. The heavily worn molar they figured (plate 2E) may indeed represent Neohipparion, as its PRL (8 mm) falls outside the OR of C. ingenuum (Table 3). The more abundant UF sample from this fauna does not contain any specimens referable to Neohipparion.
As noted by Simpson (1930), Cormohipparion ingenuum is commonly found in Florida; however, typically it is less abundant than its congener, C.

plicatile. For example, the Love Site sample consists of a minimum number of 62 individuals of C. ingenuum and 83 of C. plicatile (MacFadden and Hulbert in press). Its biostratigraphic range in Florida as recognized here extends from the early Clarendonian to the late early Hemphillian. Simpson (1930, fig. 20C) illustrated a molar labelled as C. ingenuum that is instead Nannippus minor (UF/FGS V-1426). The specimen is less complete than represented in the figure and slightly smaller. The slightly worn molar he figured as C. plicatile (Simpson 1930, fig. 20B) is referable to C. ingenuum instead. Diagnostic features of this specimen (UF/FGS V-1485) are its narrow protocone with a flattened lingual border and its small TRW. C. ingenuum has often been recognized from the late Hemphillian Upper Bone Valley Fauna of Florida (Sellards 1916; Simpson 1930; Webb and Tessman 1968; Webb 1969b), either as "Hipparion" ingenuum or "Nannippus" ingenuus. Most of these records are referable to the more advanced species, C. emsliei. Others are either generically indeterminant or referable to N. minor. Both C. plicatile and C. ingenuum are recognized from the Bone Valley Formation (see referred specimens listing and Figs. 4C-4E, 8C, 9, 10), but are interpreted as being derived from older horizons than that which produces C. emsliei. Based on the joint occurrence with C. plicatile (see below), Pseudhipparion skinneri (Webb and Hulbert 1986), Neohipparion trampasense, and Calippus cerasinus (Hulbert 1988a), the Nichols Mine "Stream Matrix" Horizon records are either late Clarendonian or early Hemphillian. The early Clarendonian age of the late Agricola Fauna specimens discussed above is based on their co-occurrence with Pseudhipparion curtivallum, Nannippus n. sp, Calippus martini, Protohippus supremus, and Hypohippus sp, cf. H. affinis (Hulbert 1988a).

Revised Diagnosis. Medium-sized Cormohipparion with toothrow lengths of 128-140 mm in middle wear-stages. Unworn MSCH of P2 about 40 mm and M12 about 58 mm. On average, smaller than C. occidentale, generally with less complicated fossettes, less elongate protocones, and relatively more elongated diastema. More hypsodont and more complex enamel plications than C. sphenodus. Larger and higher crowned cheek teeth than C. ingenuum; larger than C. emsliei with simpler fossette plications and weaker pli caballinids.
Description.-- All cranial material referable to Cormohipparion plicatile lacks uncrushed or complete pre-orbital regions. Four specimens (UF 32257, 32255, 35891, 32250) from the Love Site and UF 93000 from Moss Acres preserve parts of the facial region, but none contains the entire DPOF. The specimen with the most complete DPOF, UF 32250, is an uncrushed, partial maxilla with well worn but diagnostic P3-M2 (Fig. 14B). It contains the ventral base and rim of a deep (at least 15 mm) DPOF located 46 mm dorsal to the toothrow (Fig. 14A). The three other Love Site specimens also preserve small portions of a fossa. These crania differ considerably from Love Site specimens assigned to Neohipparion trampasense, in which the DPOF is reduced to a slight depression (MacFadden 1984; Hulbert 1987b). The badly crushed skull of UF 93000 preserves only the dorsal portion of both DPOFs. They were evidentially less well-rimmed dorsally than those of C. occidentale, and probably shallower. Another extremely crushed skull of C. plicatile, RAM 107876 from Mixson's Bone Bed, was noted by MacFadden (1984:174) as not possessing a deep DPOF. RAM 107876 is crushed and fragmented to such a

degree that not even the orbits are discernible. Until discovery of uncrushed, more complete cranial material, the facial region of C. plicatile and the exact morphology of its DPOF must remain poorly documented. The Love Site and Moss Acres Racetrack Site specimens demonstrate the presence of a moderate to deep DPOF, but not its complete morphology.
The following dental descriptions are based primarily on the abundant Love Site sample, with added comparisons from other localities. Statistics of cheektooth dimensions of C. plicatile are presented in Tables 3 and 4. Upper cheekteeth of C. plicatile are characterized by oval protocones with convex lingual borders, richly plicated internal fossette borders (especially in early wear), moderately deep hypoconal grooves open to near the base of the crown, and strong styles. The P2 has a well developed anterostyle, and is by far the longest tooth in the toothrow (Fig. 15A, 15B). The oval protocone of the P2


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
271
generally remains isolated from the protoselene until mid-wear. Many P2s with MSCHs of 20 to 25 mm retain isolated protocones. Unworn MSCH of the P2 is about 38 to 42 mm. Fossette plications resemble those of the P34, except that the anterior half of the prefossette usually has two or three small folds. The pli caballin is generally single, although often bifurcated. The P34 (Figs. 14B, 15,16B) are much larger in occlusal area than the M12, with larger and more widely opened parastyles and mesostyles. The parastyles are often slightly grooved, and metastyles are occasionally developed, but not as prominently as in C. emsliei or Neohipparion eurystyle. In very early wear, the protocone of the P34 is elongate, occasionally with a rudimentary spur, but with wear the spur (if present) vanishes and the protocone rapidly becomes more oval. This change is produced by an increase in protocone width, as protocone length is uncorrelated with crown height (r = 0.05, n = 132), while protocone width has a significant negative correlation with crown height (r = -0.64, n = 130, p < 0.001). Protocone length is generally less than twice its width, a feature useful in distinguishing C. plicatile from its slightly smaller contemporary, Neohipparion trampasense. The main axis of the protocone runs in a more direct anterior-posterior direction than that of N. trampasense. The protocone of the P34 does not connect to the protoselene until very late wear-stages (MSCH of 15 mm or less). Fossette and pli caballin complexity also vary considerably with crown height. In early wear, the well developed pli caballin is usually multiple, branched, or both (Fig. 15A). With wear, it decreases in length and complexity, usually becoming single by late mid-wear (MSCH of 15 to 30 mm), and lost or rudimentary only in very late wear (Fig. 14B). In the Love Site sample, the anterior half of the P34 prefossette most often is not plicated (60% of examined specimens, n = 112), or has a single, small pli protoloph (32%; Fig. 15A, 15B). The latter condition occurs most frequently in the less worn teeth. The posterior half of the prefossette in early to moderate wear is richly plicated, with four to nine folds, of which several are often deep and bifurcating. The anterior half of the postfossette is only slightly less complex, generally with a deep, often branched pli postfossette and two to five accessory plications. In moderate to late wear-stages, these internal fossette plications become shallower and less numerous (e.g. Fig. 14B), although even very heavily worn teeth usually retain at least two or three folds. The posterior half of the postfossette has a single (59%, n = 110), relatively shallow and small pli hypostyle, or lacks all plications (39% of observed specimens). Early Hemphillian samples of P34s of C. plicatile, while of similar proportions to the Love Site sample (Tables 1, 3), are on average more complexly plicated (Fig. 16B, 16D). For example, of 16 observed P34s, seven (44%) had a single pli protoloph, eight (50%) had a pli protoloph plus one or two accessory plications, and only one lacked all plications on the anterior half of the prefossette (the character state found in the majority of the Love Site sample). Unworn P34 MSCH varies from 50 to 55 mm.

In mid-wear, M12 of C. plicatile have nearly square occlusal surfaces, with length slightly exceeding width on average (Table 3). However, since length is positively correlated with crown height (r = 0.77, n = 124), and width is negatively correlated with crown height (r = -0.50, n = 123), the ratio of length to width changes greatly through ontogeny. The M12 protocone is slightly smaller than that of the P34 (Table 3), but similar in morphology and degree of isolation from the protoselene. The pli caballin is only rarely double (6% of observed Love Site specimens, n = 121), but it persists until late wear, when it gradually disappears in extremely worn teeth (almost always after MSCH is less than 20 mm). In the Love Site sample, the anterior half of the prefossette of the M12 generally lacks plications (81%, n = 120; Figs. 14B, 15). A single, relatively shallow pli protoloph is occasionally found in early wear-stages, and it rarely has accessory plications. The posterior half of the prefossette most often has from three to five, rarely bifurcated plications, and a well developed prefossette loop. The anterior half of the postfossette generally has between two and four plications (86% of Love Site sample, n = 121), usually consisting of a relatively deep, unbifurcated pli postfossette and several labial accessory plications. The posterior half of the postfossette in early wear often has a single pli hypostyle; it is usually lost by mid-wear. As with the P34, M12 of C. plicatile from the early Hemphillian localities (Mixson's, McGehee, Moss Acres) are on average more complicated than the Love Site population (Fig. 16A, 16C), although of the same general size (Table 3). For example, a third of the pooled sample of M12 from the younger sites have multiple pli caballins (Fig. 16A, 16F). Also, fossette plications are more numerous and tend to persist longer throughout wear. Unworn MSCH of M12 are about 56-59 mm for the Love Site sample. Based on UF 96386 from Moss Acres (Table 1), Hemphillian C. plicatile had increased its unworn crown height by about 8%.
Deciduous upper premolars of C. plicatile have very large parastyles, generally multiple pli caballins, and oval protocones. The degree of fossette complexity is intermediate between that of the P34 and the M12. Protoconal spurs are not uncommon, and the hypoconal groove frequently has a pli dihypostyle. No specimens are available to indicate the relative size of the DPI, but it was apparently lost in some mature individuals (e.g. USNM 8265).
The referred Love Site sample includes numerous associated lower dentitions and partial mandibles referred to Cormohipparion plicatile (as well as several hundred isolated lower cheekteeth), but none is complete; i.e. there are no mandibles that include symphyseal regions, and only one with an ascending ramus. However, UF 69967, from the Moss Acres Racetrack Site, has a relatively complete symphysis (Fig. 17). In this adult male individual (ml mcch = 35.3 mm), the incisors form a normal equine arcade about 55 mm in width (across the i3s) and are slightly procumbent. The ils have only small traces of the infundibula remaining, and the i3s do not have enclosed infundibula. The symphyseal region is extremely elongated, with an ldl of

about 107 mm (Fig. 17; Table 4). Adequate samples of associated lower dentitions of C. plicatile are available to allow comparisons with other Miocene hipparionines. The lower premolars of C. plicatile are very wide relative to length, as contrasted with the molars, or with the premolars of Neohipparion trampasense. The p2-p4 have large, oval metaconids, metastylids and entoconids (Figs. 18, 19B, 19D). In very early wear-stages, the ectoflexid is very shallow, the isthmus is often plicated, and a pli caballinid is variably developed (Fig. 19B). If present, the pli caballinid reduces in size with wear until it gradually vanishes, usually by moderate wear-stages. Plications from the isthmus and paralophid are common (Table 5) and generally persist until at least mid-wear. The protostylid first comes into wear after the first 12-15 mm of the crown are worn away, and is at first isolated from the protoconid (e.g. the p3 in Fig. 18A, 18B). It quickly becomes attached and is a prominent feature. The labial borders of the protoconid and hypoconid are rounded or only very slightly flattened. Ectoflexid depth varies, but most commonly only penetrates the isthmus to about the level of the base of the entoflexid, or slightly deeper, even in heavily worn teeth (Fig. 19D). As in other species of Cormohipparion, occasionally the p4, and more rarely the p3, can have deep ectoflexids. Unworn mcch of p2 is about 40 mm, and 51-54 mm for the p34.
The lower molars of Cormohipparion plicatile (Figs. 18, 19A, Table 4) closely resemble those of C. occidentale and C. ingenuum in overall enamel morphology. Although initially shallow, the ectoflexid deepens rapidly with wear, so that even molars with crown heights exceeding 50 mm have completely divided isthmuses. The metaconid and metastylid are well separated from each other by the deep ectoflexid and a broad, 'U'-shaped linguaflexid. The metaconid is generally oval, while the metastylid is typically more angular (Fig. 18B, 18C). The bases of the metaflexids and entoflexids are not flat, due to rounded lingual projections from the protoconid and hypoconid. Pli caballinids are rare in molars (Table 5), always small, and confined to early wear-stages. Rudimentary thickenings of the enamel at the position in the ectoflexid from where pli caballinids would originate are not infrequent in early and moderate wear-stages, however. The antisthmus generally has a single plication in early wear-stages (Fig. 18), but plications are less common from the paralophid and postisthmus than in the premolars (Table 5). Slightly worn to unworn mcch of ml2 varies between 56 and 60 mm, while that of the m3 is about 53-56 mm.
Lower deciduous premolars of Cormohipparion plicatile (Table 2; Fig. 19C) have more elongated metaconids and metastylids than do the p2-p4, large protostylids on the dp34, and somewhat variable ectoflexid depths. The ectoflexids may be shallow, especially in early wear-stages, and sometimes do not penetrate the isthmus; but generally they deepen with wear on the dp34. The dp2 ectoflexid tends to remain shallow. As is typical for the genus, ectostylids are well developed, especially on the dp3. This structure rises

variably from 8 to 17 mm above the base of the tooth, producing an isolated, dentine-filled lake on the occlusal surface when the tooth is sufficiently worn (Fig. 19C). Pli caballinids are either absent, or, in early wear-stages, rudimentary. Metaconid crown height of unworn dp34s is about 26 mm.
Discussion. As demonstrated in the discussion section for Cormohipparion ingenuum, the holotype of "Hippotherium" plicatile is specifically diagnostic, and the name should be applied to the larger of the late Miocene species of Cormohipparion from Florida. The early taxonomic history of C. plicatile resembles that of C. ingenuum. It was originally placed in the genus Hippotherium and later transferred to Hipparion s.l. Gidley (1907) hypothesized a close phylogenetic relationship with Old World hipparionines, but this was not followed by Matthew (1924) or Simpson (1930). When Stirton (1940) separated North American Hipparion s.l. into three genera, Hipparion s.s, Nannippus, and Neohipparion, and referred to Leidy's species as "IHipparion plicatile" he again raised the possibility that it was more closely related to Old World taxa than North American hipparionines (most of which he assigned to either Neohipparion or Nannippus). More recently, "H."plicatile has appeared in some faunal lists (e.g. Hirschfeld and Webb 1968; Webb and Perrigo 1984), but it was not again analyzed phylogenetically until MacFadden (1984). MacFadden (1984:170-174) concluded that the species, while valid, was generically indeterminant. The major problem with all prior studies of the generic affinities of "Hippotherium" plicatile was the limited amount of available topotypic and referable material. This obstacle has been eliminated by the McGehee Farm, Moss Acres, and Love Site samples. These referred samples suggest assignment of the species to the genus Connohipparion, based on the same suite of characters as listed above for C. ingenuum (pp. 261-262). The phylogenetic relationships of C. plicatile are discussed at length below. The referral to Cormohipparion vindicates the observations of Gidley and Stirton that C. plicatile is more closely related to Old World hipparionines than most North American hipparionines.
Leidy's name "plicatile" suggested that the species had exceptionally complex fossette borders (as indeed is shown by the somewhat atypical holotype). This has been further emphasized by MacFadden (1984:170-171). However, these observations were based on small sample sizes, and, in some cases, included specimens I refer to Cormohipparion ingenuum. Indeed, C. plicatile has fewer fossette plications on average than any other advanced species of North American Cormohipparion (Table 7; Figs. 20 and 21). It might also be noted that the complexity of the holotype of C. plicatile results more from extreme bifurcating of plications, and not an unusually high value of total plications (12) for the species. Although the median differences (Table 7) are slight, Figures 20 and 21 reveal a quite different pattern of fossette plications between C. plicatile and C. occidentale. The multimodal distribution for C. occidentale is not the result of combining samples from different

localities. Similar multimodal distributions were produced using a sample drawn from a restricted geographic and chronologic population (Fig. 22). Much of the difference between C. plicatile and C. occidentale results from variation of plications on the anterior half of the prefossette. Slightly worn uppers of C. occidentale typically have four to six plications on the anterior half of the prefossette. More moderately worn teeth most often have only one or two. The decrease does not proceed linearly with wear, but tends to follow a step-wise pattern. This, combined with a perhaps more linear decrease in plications on other regions of the fossettes, produces the multimodal

distributions in Figures 20A, 21A, and 22. There are three distinct peaks in fossette complexity within the moderate wear-stages of C. occidentale. These are an early phase with a mode of 18,19, or 20 (here termed fossette-group A); an intermediate group (B) with a mode of 15 to 17; and a final group (C) with a mode of 11 to 13. In C. plicatile, three important differences are observed: (1) the number of plications on the anterior half of the prefossette is much less variable, being almost always 0, 1, or more rarely 2; (2) the modal values are less (by 2 or 3); and (3) group C is reached much earlier in ontogeny, such that

FIGURE 22. Histograms of total number of fossette plications of the P3 and P4 (A, n = 43) and of the Ml and M2 (B, n = 40) of Cormohipparion occidentale from the Xmas-Kat Quarries Fauna, Cherry County, Nebraska (late Clarendonian). Sample analyzed as those in Figures 20 and 21, but the Xmas-Kat sample consists primarily of skulls. Therefore, crown height cannot be directly measured on most of these specimens. To make the sample comparable to those in Figures 20 and 21, values of APL were used to exclude slightly worn or excessively worn specimens. The Xmas-Kat specimens, although slightly more complex on average, display the same multimodal pattern as the combined sample of C. occidentale in Figures 20 and 21.
groups A and B are either not observed (group A for molars, Fig. 21B) or are very rare. Generally, the first two fossette-groups are ephemerally expressed during earliest wear-stages, in the first 10% of the crown. The result is a distribution that appears more normal than that of C. occidentale, and only slightly skewed to the left. The pattern in C. plicatile is judged to represent the primitive condition, as the general trend in the genus is to increase plication number and duration, and because C. sphenodus appears to have a similar pattern (although limited available sample sizes prevent further analysis of that species). The fossette border morphology of C. occidentale could evolve from one like C. plicatile by slightly increasing the median plication number (per fossette-group), and, more importantly, substantially delaying the average crown height at which fossette-group A transforms into B, and likewise B into C.
Fossette plications in Cormohipparion ingenuum more resemble those of C. plicatile than C. occidentale in frequency distributions (Figs. 20, 21), although it has slightly more fossette plications on average than does C. plicatile (Table 7). The distribution of total fossette plications for the P3 and P4 (Fig. 20C) is obscured by the small sample size, and no obvious modal value for fossette-group C is apparent. It could be either 10,12, or 13. However, the


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
281
distribution of fossette plications of the Ml and M2 is more revealing (Fig. 21C). Two modes are apparent, that of group C at 9, and group B at 15. Like C. plicatile, C. ingenuum represents the primitive Cormohipparion pattern for ontogenetic variation in fossette complexity.
Cormohipparion plicatile is known from at least 19 localities in Florida (see referred specimens list, Table 10, and Fig. 2) that range in age from latest Clarendonian (ca. 9.0 Ma) through the later part of the early Hemphillian (ca. 6.0 Ma). The oldest well-dated population of C. plicatile is that from the Love Site, latest Clarendonian (Webb et al. 1981). The Bone Valley records from the Nichols, Fort Green, and Four Corners mines are most likely of a similar, late Clarendonian-early Hemphillian age. Vertebrates of this age are usually very rare in the Bone Valley, but are sometimes recovered from these particular mines. As phylogenetic analysis suggests that C. plicatile is the sister taxon to C. ingenuum + C. emsliei, its first appearance should be close to that of C. ingenuum (i.e. early Clarendonian). However, it was not recovered in situ from the two most productive sites of that age, the Gray Zone in Phosphoria Mine and the Agricola Road Site in Hookers Prairie Mine. This absence is significant, as C. plicatile is usually more common than C. ingenuum when both are present (note the 3:1 ratio for referred Nichols Mine specimens).
The youngest specimens referred to Cormohipparion plicatile are those derived from the Moss Acres Racetrack Site, the Dunnellon phosphate-mining region and the Withlacoochee River Site 4X in Marion and Citrus counties in north-central Florida, and the Port Manatee Site in southern Florida (Fig. 2). At these sites, C. plicatile was recovered with Nannippus minor and Neohipparion eurystyle (Hulbert 1987a, 1987b). These two species are more advanced than those of the same genera present at the Love Site, McGehee Farm, and Mixson's Bone Bed (Nannippus westoni and Neohipparion trampasense, respectively). The concurrent range zone of C. plicatile, C. ingenuum, N. minor, and N. eurystyle in Florida is the late early Hemphillian, or between 6 and 7 Ma. The otherwise taxonomically most diverse fauna of this interval in Florida, the Withlacoochee River Site 4A (Webb 1969b; Becker 1985), lacks C. plicatile, however. Differences hypothesized to have resulted from anagenic evolution are observed when younger and older samples of C. plicatile are compared, especially in terms of plication complexity. The best represented of the relatively young referred samples, that from the Moss Acres Racetrack Site, includes upper and lower teeth (Figs. 16A, 18C). The upper molars of UF 69968, 93000, and 96386 are much more complex than average Love Site specimens, with multiple pli protolophs and pli caballins. The lower molars of UF 69967, 93000, and 103754 have stronger and more persistent pli caballinids than any specimen from the numerous Love Site sample. The Moss Acres sample does not appear to differ from older populations in terms of size, and is only slightly more hypsodont. The observed magnitude of intraspecific


282
BULLETIN FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM VOL. 33(5)
evolution in C. plicatile is similar to that found in other equid chronospecies over similar intervals of time (e.g. Neohipparion trampasense).
Equid populations from outside of Florida have only occasionally been referred to C. plicatile. Webb (1969a) listed "H." plicatile in the Clarendon Fauna, but gave no references or specimen numbers. Apparently he was referring to the same population later placed by MacFadden (1980, 1984) in H. tehonense. Webb and Perrigo (1984) recently referred to "H." plicatile a sample of 50 cheekteeth from the Gracias Formation of Honduras. While morphologically similar to C. plicatile, as noted above, the smaller occlusal dimensions of this sample clearly indicate a referral to C. ingenuum (Tables 1, 2). Examination of equid specimens from the following major faunas or localities (in the F:AM, AMNH, PPM, UNSM, and UCMP collections) of late Clarendonian or early Hemphillian age has failed to indicate the presence of C. plicatile in western North America: Xmas-Kat Channels, Cole Highway Pit, Pratt Pit I, J. Swayze Quarry, Port of Entry Pit, Box T Quarry, Higgins Fauna, and the Cambridge Fauna. Most of these instead contain a large, advanced form of C. occidentale. Thus, at the present time, there are no known referable samples of C. plicatile outside of central Florida.

Diagnosis. Small- to medium-sized, moderately hypsodont species of Cormohipparion, with estimated toothrow lengths of mature individuals 115-132 mm; unworn M12 MSCH about 57 mm. Smaller, on average, than C. occidentale and C. plicatile; larger than "Merychippus" goorisi and all species of Nannippus; size similar to C. sphenodus and C. ingenuum. Protocone relatively small, elongate-oval, with flattened or concave lingual borders (rounder on P2), and isolated until late wear except on P2. On average, more complex fossette plications and better developed pli caballinid than any other North American species of Cormohipparion. Parastyle of P3 and P4 usually grooved; occasionally also Ml and M2; metastyle present, often relatively prominent. Ectoflexid shallow, not penetrating isthmus on p2-p4; metaconid and metastylid of dp2-dp4 and p2-p4 with lingual groove in early wear-stages; metaconid and paraconid of dp2 and p2 frequently connected in moderate wear-stages, isolating metaflexid as a fossettid.
Discussion.-- A complete description of this species is presented in Hulbert (1988b). One of the more remarkable aspects of this recently


2s4
BULLETIN FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM VOL. 33(5)
described species is its fossette complexity. On average, C. emsliei has the most complexly plicated fossette borders of any North American species of Cormohipparion (Table 7; Figs. 20, 21). As is the case with C. occidentale, much of the increase resulted from the persistent retention of multiple plications on the anterior half of the prefossette. C. emsliei apparently proceeded even further than C. occidentale in delaying wear-induced fossette simplification. Thus, fossette-group C only rarely appears before the first 50% of the crown is worn away (Figs. 20D, 21D), and the majority of specimens retain group B levels of complexity through the moderate wear-stage. Lower cheekteeth of this species are also relatively complex, with high frequencies of plications (Table 5).
The three Moss Acres specimens listed above fall within the observed size ranges of both Cormohipparion ingenuum and C. emsliei. They are referred to the latter because of the multiple pli protoloph and well developed styles of UF 95410 (including strong metastyle and constrict mesostyle); the well developed pli caballinids (Fig. 23B) that are present even on the heavily worn molars of UF 97259; angular metastylids; and very high ectostylids on UF 97260. The mandibular symphysis of UF 97259 is the relatively most elongated of any observed North American hipparionine (Table 4; Fig. 23A), the ldl being almost as long as the ltrl. No canines, nor alveoli for canines, are present on this specimen, indicating that it was a female. UF 97260, which was discovered less than a meter from UF 97259, appears to represent a fetal individual, as the deciduous teeth are not fully erupted, are poorly cemented, and show no sign of wear. The lowers of UF 97260 differ from the late Hemphillian and Blancan dps referred to C. emsliei in their lack of well developed grooves on the metaconid and metastylid. Faint grooves are only present on the dp2 metastylid and the dp3 metaconid. The Moss Acres sample is significantly older than those previously referred to C. emsliei, by about 3 myr. The overall fauna (see Hulbert 1988a, table 13) indicates an early, probably late early, Hemphillian age. The primary indicator taxa for this interval, Machairodus and Indarctos (Tedford et al. 1988), have not yet been recovered at Moss Acres. Both are present at the Withlacoochee River Site 4A, whose fauna otherwise greatly resembles that of Moss Acres. For example, both contain Nannippus minor, Neohipparion eurystyle, Calippus maccartyi, Aphelops mutilus, and Enhydritherium. The Neohipparion and Nannippus at Moss Acres both appear to be of a more primitive grade of evolution than specimens from Withlacoochee River Site 4A; previously, this led me to suggest a slightly older age for the former locality (Hulbert 1987a, 1987b). However, the Cormohipparion from Withlacoochee River Site 4A demonstrates none of the advanced features of C. emsliei, and instead resembles C. ingenuum (Fig. 5A, 5B). Thus, it now seems best to consider the two sites approximately contemporaneous until other aspects of the faunas are thoroughly studied. I previously (Hulbert 1987b:830) identified UF 95410 as N. eurystyle, based on its

strong styles. The relatively short protocones (Table 1) and wide fossettes signify stronger affinities with C. emsliei than with Neohipparion. This does not alter the conclusion that Neohipparion from Moss Acres is best identified as N. eurystyle rather than N. trampasense, although its morphology is in many aspects intermediate between the two.
Hulbert (1988b) hypothesized that Cormohipparion emsliei represented a relictual population limited to the Gulf Coastal Plain, possibly even to peninsular Florida. However, late Hemphillian-Blancan localities to the south and east of the Great Plains are extremely rare (except in Florida), so that the seemingly very restricted range of C. emsliei originally presented in Hulbert (1988b) is primarily based on negative evidence. The mammalian faunas from two of the most notable Hemphillian localities from the southeast excluding Florida, the Mobile l.f. and the Lee Creek Mine (Tedford and Hunter 1984), unfortunately remain undescribed. Manning and MacFadden (in press) describe a recently recovered small sample of two pre-Pleistocene equids from eastern Louisiana. These are referred to Nannippus minor and C. emsliei. The referred sample of the latter, although limited to a few specimens, includes a very diagnostic p2, and in all respects falls within the OR of the Bone Valley population of C. emsliei (Manning and MacFadden in press). The Louisiana sample thus falsifies the restrictive hypothesis that C. emsliei was limited to Florida, but not the more general hypothesis that the species was restricted to mesic coastal environments.

Description and Discussion.- UF 50753 and 93203 (Fig. 24A) are referred to Hipparion rather than Cormohipparion based on their poorly developed protostylids, lack of pli caballinids, and moderate size. Their size (Table 2) falls within the OR for H. tehonense lower premolars, and they closely resemble referred specimens of that taxon (e.g. MacFadden 1984, figs. 38-39). Both were recovered from mining spoil piles, and thus their original stratigraphic position is unknown. Terrestrial vertebrates older than late Hemphillian are relatively common in phosphatic sediments being processed in the region where these two specimens were collected, including the Clarendonian Gray Zone fauna recovered in situ from the Phosphoria Mine and the Agricola Road Site in the Hookers Prairie Mine. This older, Clarendonian, horizon is the most likely source for UF 50753 and 93203. If they have been correctly identified, the absence of Hipparion from these two localities, where about 300 early Clarendonian equid teeth have collected, is puzzling.
The Withlacoochee River 4A l.f. consists of a moderately diverse suite of late early Hemphillian vertebrates (Webb 1969b; Becker 1985). An important factor in the age determination is the co-occurrence of Indarctos and Machairodus (see above). The Withlacoochee River 4A l.f. includes a minimum of six species of equids (Table 10), of which two are common. They are Nannippus minor and the population here referred to Hipparion. The latter are referred to Hipparion based on the presence of a moderately deep DPOF (Fig. 24B); upper cheekteeth with rounded to slightly oval protocones with anterior spurs in early wear-stages that connect to the protoselene relatively early in ontogeny, fossettes with relatively simple and shallow plications, relatively poorly developed pli caballins (especially on molars), hypoconal grooves open to the base of the crown, and broad, unconstricted connections of the hypocone and the metaloph (Fig. 24C); and lower cheekteeth with relatively deep ectoflexids, poorly developed protostylids, and weak plications (Fig. 24D). This combination of dental and facial characters excludes the population from all hipparionine genera except Hipparion.
In contrast to the situation at the Withlacoochee River Site 4A, Hipparion is the rarest recognized taxon at the Love Site and Moss Acres. The upper cheekteeth from these two sites referred to Hipparion are within the size range of Cormohipparion ingenuum and Neohipparion trampasense (Table 1), but differ in their shorter, oval protocones, relatively simple fossette plications, and weak pli caballin. The lowers resemble those of Hipparion from

Withlacoochee River Site 4A, with deep ectoflexids (including the p2 of UF 32125), no pli caballinids, and no isthmus plications.
When compared to the two recognized advanced species of Hipparion from western North America, H. tehonense and H. forcei (MacFadden 1984), the referred specimens from Florida compare more favorably in size and many features with H. tehonense. H. forcei, including the early Hemphillian populations referred to by MacFadden (1984), is about 15% larger than H. tehonense. UF 17205 also compares favorably with//, tehonense in the location and depth of the DPOF. The anterostyle of the P2 is poorly developed and not well separated from the rest of the tooth as in H. tehonense (Fig. 24C). A major difference is that the Florida samples are smaller. The Withlacoochee River Site 4A population lacks retention of the DPI with the permanent dentition, has on average more complex and persistent fossette plications, has slightly higher unworn crown heights (by about 5-7 mm), and, on average, better developed plications on the lower cheekteeth. These are not considered sufficient to designate a new species. Rather, they are trends typically observed in evolving equid chronospecies. Early Hemphillian H. forcei from Nebraska shows several of the same differences when compared with Clarendonian populations from California, and the magnitude of change is comparable to that in other species with long chronologic ranges (e.g. C. occidentale, C. plicatile, Neohipparion trampasense).
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS
Several recent studies have proposed differing hypotheses regarding the phylogenetic relationships of hipparionine horses. MacFadden (1984) presented cladograms of species for each genus separately; he assumed that hipparionines were a polyphyletic assemblage with each genus having a separate merychippine sister taxon. Forsten's (1984) analysis suggested instead that the group was monophyletic, and that Pseudhipparion was also a true hipparionine (following Webb 1969). Later studies (Webb and Hulbert 1986; Hulbert 1987b) confirmed these two points, but demonstrated that Forsten's (1984) arrangement of hipparionine genera was probably incorrect. They hypothesized instead that Neohipparion and Pseudhipparion (plus "Merychippus" coloradense) formed a strictly monophyletic group, and that it was the sister taxon to other hipparionines. This hypothesis has yet to be falsified by analyses including greater numbers of characters and taxa, and employing the parsimony criterion and a computer program, PAUP (Swofford 1985), to generate cladograms (Hulbert 1988c; Hulbert and MacFadden in prep.; this study). However, the use of a broader suite of outgroups has demonstrated that the earlier analyses of Webb and Hulbert (1986) and


Hulbert (1987b) erred in the choice of Merychippus insignis as an outgroup for all hipparionines. This resulted only in an incorrect determination of polarity for several character states, and did not affect the relative phylogenetic positions of the in-group taxa. The most notable of the former was that the shallow DPOF observed in Neohipparion and Pseudhipparion was thought to have been derived from a primitively much deeper fossa. The computer-generated analyses suggest instead that a relatively shallow DPOF is the shared primitive condition in the Hipparionini and Equini, based on its development in "M." primus and "Parahippus" leonensis (Hulbert 1988c). Merychippus s.s.

(including M. insignis, M. brevidontns, and a few other species) is more closely related to Nannippus and Cormohipparion than to other hipparionine genera (see below), and is a member of the tribe Hipparionini as broadly redefined by Hulbert (1988c). The purpose of this section is to demonstrate and discuss:
(1) the composition and synapomorphic character states of the Hipparionini;
(2) the relative phylogenetic relationships of the six North American hipparionine genera, as well as several hipparionine species not assigned to any of these genera; (3) the phylogenetic relationships of species that make up the


292

clades Hipparion and Cormohipparion; and (4) the possible relationships between the latter and certain Old World hipparionines.
This analysis is based on the distribution of 58 characters among 19 taxa. All of the 71 cranial and dental characters described by Hulbert and MacFadden (in prep.) were used except for those that are primitive in each of the 19 taxa under consideration. The remaining 58 characters and their observed states are listed in Table 8. In order to facilitate comparison with Hulbert and MacFadden (in prep.) and future analyses, the same numbering scheme is used here to refer to characters as in these studies. As postcranial elements associated with skulls are unknown for the vast majority of taxa being studied, no attempt was made to use any of the 26 postcranial characters selected by Hulbert and MacFadden (in prep.) as having phylogenetic utility. The 19 taxa analyzed here include seven of the merychippine-grade species also studied by Hulbert and MacFadden (in prep.; "Parahippus" leonensis, "Merychippus" primus, "M." sejunctus, "M." coloradense, "M." goorisi, M. insignis, and Hipparion shirleyi), the two other North American species of Hipparion (H. tehonense and H. forcei), the five species of North American Cormohipparion (C. sphenodus, C. occidentale, C. plicatile, C. ingenuum, and C. emsliei), the oldest Eurasian hipparionine ('Hippotherium" primigenium), the three other hipparione genera (Pseudhipparion, Nannippus, and Neohipparion), and the tribe Equini. Character states for the latter four supraspecific taxa are those determined to be primitive for the clade based on previous analyses (Webb and Hulbert 1986; Hulbert 1987a, 1987b, 1988a, 1988c; Hulbert and MacFadden in prep.). Character states for "Hippotherium" primigenium were taken from published descriptions, especially those of Forsten (1968, 1972, 1978), Woodburne and Bernor (1980), and Bernor and Hussain (1985).
Cladograms were generated from the character matrix (Table 9) for these 19 taxa on an 80286/80287-based microcomputer by the PAUP program (version 2.4; Swofford 1985). PAUP uses a number of user-defined options to produce one or more equally most parsimonious cladograms ("trees"). "P." leonensis was used as the outgroup to determine character state polarities. A single, most parsimonious tree (Fig. 25) was generated with the SWAP = GLOBAL and MULPARS options (Swofford 1985), and equally weighted characters (default option). Using the WEIGHTS = SCALE option, which attempts to lessen the influence of multistate characters on binary characters, resulted in two most parsimonious trees of equal length. One was the same as that produced with equally weighted characters, the other differed only in the relative positions of two species of Cormohipparion (the relative merits of this alternative cladogram are discussed below). Swofford (1985) noted that several equally long pathways of character state transformation can exist within the same tree (these can be obtained by the CSPOSS option). The reconstruction of character state transformation events shown in Figure 25

presents what is considered the evolutionarily most likely route in those instances when there are two or more possibilities. For example, character 20 (amount of cement on deciduous cheekteeth) may have evolved by two different pathways of equal length. Well cemented DPs may have evolved independently three times (at Nodes 4, 12, and 19 in Fig. 25); or may have appeared at Node 3, reversed to being poorly cemented at Node 9, and then re-evolved at Node 19. In this case, as in others, parallelism is arbitrarily judged to be more likely than a reversal. The one character whose most parsimonious evolutionary pathway is not shown in Figure 25 is unworn crown height (character 71). Shorter unworn crown heights evolved four times, according to the most parsimonious arrangement. As even one such instance is unlikely, a slightly less parsimonious pathway involving more parallel increases in unworn crown height is shown in Figure 25. This route takes 23 steps, 2 more than the most parsimonious arrangement.
The taxa united at Node 1 (Fig. 25A) form the tribe Hipparionini. It is defined so as to be the sister taxon of the Equini. "Merychippus" primus is the closest known sister taxon to the Equini + Hipparionini. Synapomorphies uniting the Hipparionini are strong pli caballins on molars, more persistent fossette plications, stronger protostylids, persistently well separated metaconids and metastylids, and articulation of the fifth metacarpal primarily with the fourth metacarpal (rather than with the unciform). The importance of the latter character was first noted by Sondaar (1968:33). Members of the Hipparionini not shown in Figure 25 are "M." isonensus and "M." tertius. Together they and "M." sejunctus may form a monophyletic group (Hulbert 1988c), but the most parsimonious arrangement is for "M." sejunctus to form the nearest sister taxon to the group united at Node 3 in Figure 25A (Hulbert and MacFadden in prep.). Synapomorphies uniting the taxa at Node 3 include more isolated protocones, well developed metastyles, and increased size.
The taxa united at Node 3 comprise two monophyletic clades, those united at Nodes 4 and 9, respectively. Hulbert (1988c) suggested the informal designations Neohipparion-genus group for the former, and Hipparion-genus group for the latter. These informal group names (a convention of Wiley 1981) are of subtribal rank. Webb and Hulbert (1986) and Hulbert (1987b) have presented phylogenetic analyses of the 14 known species that comprise the Neohipparion-genus group. Although M. insignis was incorrectly used as an outgroup in those studies, its replacement with "Parahippus" leonensis and use of PAUP did not substantially alter their results (Hulbert 1987a). The Neohipparion-genus group is united by numerous synapomorphies including well cemented deciduous premolars, elongate-oval protocones, weaker molar pli caballins, strong metastyles, straighter upper cheekteeth, stronger protostylids, shallower p34 ectoflexids, and higher crowned cheekteeth. Synapomorphies for Pseudhipparion and Neohipparion are listed in Figure 25. This basic dichotomy within the Hipparionini of the Neohipparion-genus group


294

and Hipparion-genus group was first recognized by Gidley (1907), on the basis of many of the same characers, in his division of hipparionines into two genera, Neohipparion and Hipparion. Unfortunately, this insightful observation was overlooked by most later workers.
The Hipparion-genus group, united at Node 9 of Figure 25, is made up of four genera found in, if not confined to, North America (Hipparion, Merychippus s.s, Nannippus, and Cormohipparion), and "Merychippus" goorisi, which is a plesion of generic rank. All Old World hipparionines also belong in this group, despite recent referrals of some to Neohipparion (e.g. Forsten 1984). Hulbert (1987b, see also Flynn and Bernor 1987) hypothesized that Neohipparion is a strictly North American group, as originally proposed by Gidley (1903), and resemblances with Old World taxa result from parallelism. As noted in the introduction, the exact phylogenetic affinities of Old World hipparionines with North American members of the Hipparion-genus group is still under debate. One Old World species, "Hippotherium" primigenium, was included in the analysis, to suggest at least one possible tie between North American and Eurasian hipparionines. Synapomorphies uniting the Hipparion-genus group are: a pocketed DPOF with distinct ventral rim; moderately long preorbital bar; increased fossette complexity; and more open hypoconal grooves. The three North American species of Hipparion form the sister group (at Node 10) to the remainder of the genus group. They are united by their deeper nasal notch, long preorbital bar, long muzzle, elongate-oval protocones, poorly developed or absent metastyles, and increased unworn crown height. MacFadden's (1984) cladogram of these three species is identical to the most parsimonious arrangement calculated by PAUP, although there are some differences in character interpretation between the two studies. MacFadden's (1984:177) only synapomorphy for the clade was its "...diagnostic configuration of the DPOF... ." Based on the analysis presented in Figure 25, most of the features of the DPOF in these three species are plesiomorphic for the Hipparion-genus group, the exception being the relatively long preorbital bar. Other characters of the cranium and dentition serve to unite the group. It should be emphasized that the protocone shape, although slightly more elongated than the primitive hipparionine condition, is less elongated in these species than in other taxa for which the character (23) is similarly coded, such as "M." coloradense or Cormohipparion sphenodus. This clade retained relatively more oval protocones into the Clarendonian than any other hipparionine genus. H. shirleyi is the sister taxon of H. forcei and H. tehonense, as was shown by MacFadden (1984). He (fig. 27) considered the size of H. shirleyi primitive; this analysis suggests the most parsimonious arrangement is for the small size of this species to be derived. H. forcei and H. tehonense share numerous synapomorphies (Node 12, Figure 25B), including reduced lacrimal bone, thickly cemented deciduous premolars, reduced P2 anterostyle, reduced protoconal spur, more open hypoconal grooves that do not form lakes, and


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
295
straighter upper cheekteeth. H. tehonense lacks any autapomorphies relative to H. forcei, but the latter is larger, has higher crowned teeth, and shallower p34 ectoflexids relative to the former.
At Node 15, Merychippus, Nannippus, Cormohipparion, and "M." goorisi share the following derived character states relative to Hipparion and their common ancestor with the Neohipparion-genus group (Node 3): frequently multiple pli caballins on premolars, persistently plicated external fossette borders (pli protoloph and pli hypostyle), and well developed protostylids on dp34. The placement of Merychippus this "high" in the cladogram runs contrary to the usual concept of the genus; i.e. a group of mesodont, mid-Miocene equids ancestral to all hypsodont genera. Merychippus is used here in a very restricted sense, to include only the type species (M. insignis) and those species with which it forms a monophyletic clade. Moreover, the position of M. insignis in Figure 25B is actually not very different from that proposed by Stirton (1940), who regarded it as ancestral to both Nannippus and Hipparion. To him the latter included taxa now regarded as Cormohipparion or Comiohipparion-derivatives. Derived characters of M. insignis relative to Node 15 include weakened ventral rim of DPOF, shortened muzzle, hypoconal lake on molars, and increased crown height. The latter is not characteristic of more primitive members of Merychippus s.s, such as M. brevidontus.
United at Node 17 are "M." goorisi, Nannippus, and Cormohipparion. They share a very deep, well pocketed DPOF with a well defined anterior margin, protocones isolated to late wear-stages (except on P2), complex fossette plications, hypoconal groove open to base of crown, and well developed protostylids on p3-m3. It has been frequently stated in the literature than "M." goorisi only shares derived facial character states with Cormohipparion, but that its dentition is of merychippine grade (e.g. MacFadden 1984). However, as demonstrated by this list of synapomorphies, and despite its low crown height and thin cement, the cheekteeth of "M." goorisi are advanced in several respects. MacFadden (1984:185) suggested that "M." goorisi was directly ancestral to Cormohipparion sphenodus, despite possession of a possible autapomorphy, a very deeply pocketed DPOF. Evander (1985) noted that the fossa of the holotype of "M." goorisi (F:AM 73900) had the most deeply pocketed DPOF of the topotypic sample, and that there was considerable variation for the expression of this character. Therefore, I do not consider the degree of pocketing in this species to be derived beyond that observed in other species of Cormohipparion. The face of "M." goorisi does have derived characters; the lacrimal bone is reduced and does not form part of the DPOF. As the preorbital bar is only moderately long (i.e. the DPOF is close to the orbit), the jugal forms the posteroventral half of the DPOF (a unique feature among North American hipparionines, because others with reduced lacrimals also have long preorbital bars such that only the maxilla and nasal form the DPOF). This derived facial morphology makes it unlikely for


296
BULLETIN FLORIDA STATE MUSEUM VOL. 33(5)
"M." goorisi to have been ancestral to C. sphenodus (or any other known species) and also differentiates it from M. insignis (contra Evander 1986).
As suggested by Hulbert (1987a, 1988c), Nannippus and Cormohipparion are sister taxa, united at Node 19 of Figure 25B. The character states reported for Nannippus (Table 9) are those of an undescribed, but well represented species from the Clarendonian of Nebraska, Texas, and Florida (Hulbert 1987a, in prep.). Several maxillae and partial skulls in the Frick Collection (e.g. RAM 117046) clearly demonstrate the facial morphology of this taxon, which closely resembles that of C. sphenodus. These samples, plus a large number of teeth of a very late Clarendonian Nannippus from the Love Site form a chronomorphocline for many dental character states that bridges the differences between Cormohipparion and typical Hemphillian Nannippus. At Node 19, Nannippus and Cormohipparion share a very long preorbital bar, thickly cemented deciduous premolars, elongate-oval protocones, reduced protoconal spur, straighter upper cheekteeth, strong ectostylids on dp2-dp4, isolated protostylids in early wear-stages, plicated isthmuses, small pli caballinids on slightly worn p2-p4, shallower premolar ectoflexids, and increased unworn crown height. Species of Nannippus share the following derived characters (Node 20), very reduced or lost DPI, reduced P2/DP2 anterostyle, and decreased size.
The cladistic arrangement of species of Cormohipparion in Figure 25B differs greatly from that of MacFadden (1984). "M." goorisi is not considered a member of Cormohipparion, as to include it would render the genus paraphyletic. Three species not considered by MacFadden (1984) as belonging in Cormohipparion form a monophyletic group that branches off between C. sphenodus and C. occidentale on the cladogram. Also, he suggested that "Old World Cormohipparion" was more closely related to C. sphenodus than to C. occidentale, but did not list any shared derived characters to demonstrate this (MacFadden 1984, fig. 149A). This study suggests instead that C. occidentale and "Old World Cormohipparion" share eight derived character states not observed in C. sphenodus, five of these with C. (Notiocradohipparion) at Node 23, and three at Node 24. Apomorphic character states that unite all Cormohipparion s.l. at Node 21 include a very reduced or absent protoconal spur, shallower ectoflexids on dp2-dp4, persistent isthmus plications, plicated paralophids, and increased size. C. sphenodus has no known autapomorphies, and may, as suggested by Woodburne et al. (1981), be directly ancestral to all or some of the remaining species of the genus. At Node 23, these five species are united by lacrimal excluded from DPOF (this state unknown for Notiocradohipparion spp.), more elongated muzzle, protoconal spur usually absent, pli caballinid present on slightly worn molars, and increased unworn crown height. The three shared-derived character states of C. occidentale and "Hippotherium" primigenium are multiple plis protoloph common, persistently very complex internal fossettes, and increased size (Node 24).


HULBERT: CORMORHIPPARION & HIPPARION FROM FLORIDA
297
Autapomorphies for C. occidentale (Node 25) include elongated protocone with flattened lingual borders, and increased unworn crown height. Also apparently derived for C. occidentale is the very narrow anterior portion of the DPOF (MacFadden 1984). Relative to C. occidentale, "H." primigenium is derived by its larger size, and the dorsoventrally high, anteroventrally-oriented DPOF (Woodburne et al. 1981; Bernor and Hussain 1985). Also, a variable but significant fraction (10 to 50%) of p3-m2 have ectostylids in "H." primigenium (Forsten 1978:300-301), a character almost never observed in permanent teeth of North American hipparionines. Most of the differences and similarities in cranial morphology between C. sphenodus, C. occidentale, and "H." primigenium listed above were previously discussed by Bernor and Hussain (1985).
The three remaining species, C. plicatile, C. ingenuum, and C. emsliei, form a monophyletic group united at Node 27, herein designated the new subgenus Notiocradohipparion. They share but one synapomorphy, a very elongated muzzle region. The length of the lower diastema (ldl) is equal to or greater than 70% of the lower toothrow length (ltrl); in C. occidentale the ldl is less than 65% of the trl. Obviously, a clade based on a single synapomorphy is not well supported. As these three species are still poorly known with regards to cranial and postcranial characters, recovery of more complete specimens will test the hypothesis of their monophyly. C. plicatile forms the sister taxon to C. ingenuum + C. emsliei; relative to them its only autapomorphy is increased unworn crown height. Its size and enamel morphology are judged to reflect the primitive conditions for the clade, as does what is known of the morphology of its DPOF. C. ingenuum and C. emsliei share (Node 29) a shallower DPOF without a distinct ventral rim, protocone lingual borders often flat or concave, p2/dp2 metaconid with anterior plication that connects to paralophid, and decreased size. C. ingenuum has no known autapomorphies relative to C. emsliei. C. emsliei has numerous autapomorphies, including an apparently very shallow DPOF without a distinct anterior margin, increased fossette complexity, shallower ectoflexids, strong and persistent pli caballinids, and elongated, angular metaconids and metastylids.
The cladogram and hypothesized relationships discussed above form the most parsimonious arrangement of these taxa when all characters are equally weighted. As previously noted, PAUP has an option (WEIGHT = SCALE) that scales each character with regards to its number of possible states. For a character with only two states (0 and 1), the transformation 0>1 or 1>0 counts as 1.0 step (the same as with equally weighted characters). For a character with three states (0,1, and 2), single step transformations, e.g. 0>1, 1>2, or 1>0, each count as 0.5 steps. In the case of four states, single step transformations count as 0.333 steps; or in the general case of n states, each single step counts as l/(n-l), such that the complete transformation from 0>(n-l) always equals 1.0. The purpose of this option is to prevent


298

characters with many states from having undue influence on the cladogram (Swofford 1985). With this option in effect for the data set in Table 9, PAUP produced two equally most parsimonious cladograms. One of these was that produced with the default equally weighting option and shown in Figure 25. The second cladogram differed slightly in that it united C. ingenuum and C emsliei with C. occidentale as a monophyletic group, whose closest sister taxon was "H." primigenium. There are several reasons for considering this alternative arrangement less likely than the one previously discussed. It unites C. ingenuum, C. emsliei, C. occidentale, and "H." primigenium by their more complexly plicated fossettes (characters 32 and 33), and increased size (the same three characters that unite Node 24 in Fig. 25B). C. occidentale, C. ingenuum, and C. emsliei are united only by a flattened lingual border of the protocone (24). C. ingenuum and C. emsliei are united by the same characters as listed for Node 29 in Figure 25B, except that the decrease in size is of greater magnitude. C. ingenuum is derived relative to C. emsliei by simplifying its fossettes, i.e. C. ingenuum does not really possess any of the three characters that are supposed to unite this clade, so it must reverse all three back to the primitive condition. The alternate tree also requires parallel acquisition of the very elongated muzzle in C. plicatile and C. ingenuum + C. emsliei. This combination of parallelisms and reversals seems less likely than that required for the other tree.
Another reason for considering the alternate hypothesis less likely is the chronologic distribution of the taxa involved. Although biostratigraphic records should not be used to construct phylogenies (Novacek and Norell 1982), they can be used, along with biogeographic distributions, to choose among phylogenies of equal length. This is especially valid when the fossil record is relatively complete, as is the case for late Miocene horses. In the alternative phylogeny, both C. emsliei and C. ingenuum possess derived character states relative to one another, thus as sister taxa their time of first appearance should be about the same. In the first cladogram (Fig. 25), C. ingenuum has no autapomorphies relative to C. emsliei. Thus it may have given rise to C. emsliei through anagenesis (if their observed ranges do not overlap in time), or through cladogenesis with the parent species not going extinct during speciation (if there is overlap in their temporal ranges, as appears to be the case based on the Moss Acres Racetrack Site record). The chronological ranges of these two species, as currently known, favors the latter scenario. C. ingenuum is first known in the early Clarendonian, 4 myr prior to the first appearance of C. emsliei at Moss Acres. The alternative cladogram also implies a much older (late Barstovian) origination for C. plicatile than is reflected in the fossil record (late Clarendonian). Therefore, I consider the cladogram in Figure 25 to represent the most likely hypothesis of relationships among the species of the Hipparion-genus group, based on the distribution of cranial and dental character states.

BIOCHRONOLOGY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY
The chronological and geographical distribution of the five recognized species of Cormohipparion, the three species of Hipparion, and "Merychippus" goorisi are outlined in Figure 26. The oldest known species of Hipparion, "H." shirleyi, and "Merychippus" goorisi are both at present known only from the Barstovian of the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain. However, as noted by MacFadden (1984), additional specimens may exist in other regions, but would be difficult to separate from other merychippines without very complete material. MacFadden (1984:154-155) extended the chronologic range of "M." goorisi beyond that of the type locality into the late Barstovian, with reference to specimens from the Cold Springs Fauna. He specifically referred TMM 31242-71 to "M." goorisi, and stated that it came from the "Cold Springs L. F." (p. 155). However, this specimen is from the Point Blank local fauna, stratigraphically the lowest among the local faunas that make up the Burkeville Fauna (early Barstovian; Tedford et al. 1988), and is the holotype of Protohippus vetus Quinn (1955). If MacFadden's (1984) reference is followed, then "M." goorisi must become a junior synonym of P. vetus. However, the two are distinctly different in fossette complexity, degree of protocone attachment, and crown height and are not specifically identical. The status and phylogenetic position of Protohippus vetus was further discussed by Hulbert (1988a). I do not recognize "M." goorisi from the Cold Springs Fauna; rather that fauna contains a relatively primitive population of C. sphenodus.
The late Barstovian-early Clarendonian taxon C. sphenodus is widely distributed, from California to Florida, and apparently represents the ancestral stock for the remaining members of the genus (Woodburne et al. 1981; MacFadden 1984). Bernor and Hussain (1985) discount C. sphenodus as being "directly" ancestral to Old World hipparionines, because it is too primitive, and noted the variation in DPOF morphology in specimens referred to C. sphenodus. Further analysis may show that C. sphenodus as presently used is a grade, with two separate clades, one closer to Notiocradohipparion, and one to C. occidentale, respectively. The southern and eastern C. sphenodus-derived lineage is represented by C. plicatile, C. ingenuum, and C. emsliei, which together comprise the subgenus Notiocradohipparion. C. plicatile as known is restricted to the late Clarendonian and early Hemphillian of peninsular Florida. C. ingenuum is also known from Central America; probably this represents an immigration event southward along the Gulf Coastal Plain from Texas. C. emsliei is the youngest surviving species of Cormohipparion in North America (Fig. 26) and is as yet known only from localities along the Gulf Coastal Plain in Florida (Hulbert 1988b) and Louisiana (Manning and MacFadden in press). It is possible that all three had much larger ranges in southeastern North America, and that their apparently limited distribution is

more a reflection of a biased fossil record. For example, the absence of Cormohipparion in the late Clarendonian and Hemphillian of the Texas Gulf Coastal Plain (Fig. 26) probably just reflects the total lack of faunas of the appropriate age. In the Great Plains, Cormohipparion is not observed in any late Hemphillian (6.0 to 4.5 Ma) or younger localities. The Upper Bone Valley Formation sample and those from the Florida Blancan mark the last North American appearance of what was once one of the dominant equid genera of the late Miocene. Its absence in western late Hemphillian and Blancan faunas is probably real, as sites of this age are fairly well known.
In general, Cormohipparion is much poorer in terms of biostratigraphic utility for correlation of Gulf Coastal Plain and Great Plains localities than Pseudhipparion, Neohipparion, Calippus, or Protohippus. This is because of the long temporal durations of species' ranges (Fig. 26, Table 10) and limited geographic distribution. They are of more use for correlation within the circum-Gulf of Mexico region, e.g. C. ingenuum in Honduras, and especially within the state of Florida.
The genus Hipparion (sensu MacFadden 1984) ranges from the late Barstovian to early Hemphillian in North America. The record of Hipparion east of the Rocky Mountains is scattered, and it is typically rare, the Clarendon Fauna being a notable exception. In faunas from California, however, the genus is more common. Relative to its contemporaries, Hipparion was not a diverse group. Besides H. shirleyi, only two other chronospecies are recognized; both range from the Clarendonian to the late early Hemphillian. The sample of Hipparion, cf. H. tehonense, in Florida ranges from the early Clarendonian to late early Hemphillian. Records from the Moss Acres Ranch Site and the Withlacoochee River 4A l.f. are two of the youngest for the genus. MacFadden (1984) referred a similarly aged population from Nebraska to H. forcei. Hipparion is also a poor biostratigraphic indicator in Florida, because of its rarity and long chronologic range.
Table 10 summarizes the distribution of equid species in Florida from the late Barstovian to the end of the Blancan, the interval for which Cormohipparion is known to have been present. The late early Hemphillian (6-7 Ma) was the period of maximum species richness for the Hipparion-genus group in Florida, with six contemporary species. Only two of these lineages persisted into the late Hemphillian, C. emsliei and Nannippus minor. This mid-Hemphillian extinction event (at about 6.0 Ma) includes the last appearance in North America of four equid genera, Hipparion, Calippus, Protohippus, and Pliohippus (Hulbert 1987a, 1988a), in what marks a major event in the decline of the Clarendonian Chronofauna (Webb 1977,1984).

CONCLUSIONS
Of the five recognized North American species of Cormohipparion and three of Hipparion, all appear in Gulf Coastal Plain faunas except H. forcei. "Merychippus" goorisi and H. shirleyi are both small, primitive species known from the Barstovian Fleming Formation of southeast Texas, but are as yet unknown from Florida. The ubiquitous late Barstovian-early Clarendonian C. sphenodus is provisionally recognized for the first time in eastern North America. Limited samples of isolated teeth are found in the lower of two superposed faunas in the Bone Valley Formation of south-central Florida. C. occidentale, well known from the latest Barstovian, Clarendonian, and early Hemphillian of the Great Plains and California, is also provisionally recognized for the first time in Florida, from a limited suite of isolated teeth. The nearest well-documented occurrence is in the Lapara Creek Fauna of southern Texas (Forsten 1975).
Two previously enigmatic hipparionine species described a century ago by Joseph Leidy from Mixson's Bone Bed, Levy County, Florida, are both referred to Cormohipparion. This is based on newly recovered and more complete material from the Love, McGehee Farm, and Moss Acres Racetrack sites. Referred material of C. ingenuum ranges in age from early Clarendonian to late early Hemphillian (about 11.0 to 6.0 Ma), and demonstrates minor amounts of chronoclinal evolution, most notably in increasing enamel complexity. The range of C. plicatile is limited to the late Claredonian-early Hemphillian (9.0-6.0 Ma), but it is typically more abundant than C. ingenuum and shows a greater degree of chronoclinal change. C. plicatile is not recognized as yet from localities outside of peninsular Florida. The population of medium-sized hipparionines from the Lapara Creek Fauna is for the most part not referable to C. ingenuum, as was suggested by Quinn (1955) and Forsten (1975), but instead to H. tehonense and to an undescribed species of Nannippus. Only two Texas specimens are referred to C. ingenuum. C. ingenuum and C. plicatile differ principally in size and crown height. The Cormohipparion population from the Gracias Formation of Honduras, referred to C. plicatile by Webb and Perrigo (1984), is notably smaller than Florida samples of that species, but well within the observed range of C. ingenuum. C. ingenuum is not the senior synonym of Nannippus lenticularis (Cope), as was proposed by MacFadden (1984). Although of similar size, the two taxa differ in facial morphology, crown height, and in numerous details of the dentition.
Cormohipparion is not observed in late Hemphillian faunas of the west, as it disappears there along with many other members of the Clarendonian Chronofauna. However, the genus persisted in Florida until near the end of the Blancan. The upper Bone Valley Formation and two late Blancan faunas

from Florida contain a small to moderate-sized and distinctively complexly plicated species, C. emsliei (Hulbert 1988b). C. emsliei apparently is descended from C. ingenuum, but their observed ranges overlap in the late early Hemphillian, based on a new record from the Moss Acres Racetrack Site. Many dental features that appeared in the C. ingenuum-C. emsliei lineage parallel those observed in Neohipparion, but occur about four million years later. In terms of its degree of hypsodonty, C. emsliei is much more primitive than contemporary species of Pseudhipparion, Neohipparion, Nannippus, Astrohippus, and Dinohippus, and reflects a Clarendonian grade of evolution (Hulbert 1988b). However, its fossettes have on average more plications than any other North American hipparionine.
Hipparion tehonense is recognized (at least provisionally) in Florida, from an early Clarendonian horizon in the Bone Valley Formation, from the late Clarendonian Love Site, and from the early Hemphillian Moss Acres and Withlacoochee River 4A sites. The latter two represent the youngest records of the species. These referred specimens are morphologically similar to the topotypic sample from California, but are on average smaller.
