Abstract

A re-examination of the lectotype of Sus giganteus Falconer & Cautley, 1847, reveals that it is a suine, as originally thought by its discoverers, and not a tetraconodont as recently published. It may belong to the genus Propotamochoerus as proposed by Azzaroli in 1989. This reassessment radically modifies tetraconodont systematics published recently by Van der Made (1999).
