The mountain beaver (Aplodontia rufa) is a North American is the only living member of its genus, Aplodontia, and family, Aplodontiidae. It should not be confused with true North American and Eurasian beavers, to which it is not closely related.

Aplodontia rufa is the sole remaining species of the family Aplodontidae (suborder Sciuromorpha, order Rodentia). It is relict from a diverse evolutionary history (three families and 34 genera) extending back to the Eocene Epoch ( million to million years ago) of North America; some now-extinct forms also lived during Oligocene to.

The family Aplodontiidae also known as Aplodontidae, Haplodontiidae or Haploodontini is traditionally classified as the sole extant family of the suborder may be the sister family of the Sciuridae.

There are fossils from the Oligocene until Miocene in Asia, from Oligocene in Europe and from the Oligocene until the present in North America, where there is the only living Class: Mammalia. Get this from a library. On Aplodontia, a new genus of the order Rodentia: constituted for the reception of the sewellel, a burrowing animal which inhabits the north western coast of.

Rodent - Rodent - Evolution and classification: As documented by fossils, the evolutionary history of rodents extends back 56 million years to the Late Paleocene Epoch in North America. Those species, however, are considered to have originated in Eurasia, so the origin of the order Rodentia is certainly older.

However, lack of fossil evidence prior to the Late Paleocene makes the understanding. The order consists of 39 families, genera, and 1, species.

The so-called mountain beaver is the only species, rufa (ROO-fuh; reddish), On Aplodontia in the only genus, Aplodontia (ap-lo-DON-ti-uh), in the singular family Aplodontiidae (AP-lo-don-TEE-ih-dee).

Adaptation: The many similarities in the form of the skull of an early rodent from the Paleocene, Paramys, and the living Mountain Beaver, Aplodontia, suggest roughly similar functional patterns of foraging and feeding in the two.

A new genus and species of aplodontid rodent, Proansomys dureensis, from the late Oligocene of the northern Junggar Basin of China is new genus is referred to as Ansomyinae because the ectoloph on the upper cheek teeth, although not fully crested, has attained the same characteristic bucket-handle-shaped configuration as other members of the subfamily.

The Aplodontoidea, now restricted to only one North American species (Aplodontia rufa), have shown a wide Holarctic extension since the Upper Eocene. As their fossil record is poor, their phylogenetic relationships and the origins of their successive radiations remain unclear.

We perform here phylogenetic analyses, primarily based on dental evidence (94 dental of 97 characters), restricted to. Aplodontia rufa is the only species and genus in its family with no known living relatives. The species, "is considered the most primitive living rodent, with an ancestry that goes back into the first half of the Tertiary Period (approximately 66 to 3 million years ago).

J., 4: Type Species: Aplodontia leporina Richardson, Some of the families included in this order are: Family Aplodontidae This family includes one single genus and species, the Mountain Beaver (Aplodontia rufa).

This animal is endemic to north-western areas of North America. It is the most primitive of the rodents alive today and lives in humid forests.

If Eurymylidae, including Heomys, is considered a family of Rodentia (e.g., Li and Ting, ), then the geological range of the Order extends from the early-middle Paleocene.

If not (e.g., Meng and Wyss, ; Wyss and Meng, ), then several ischyromyid genera from the late Paleocene appear to be the earliest true rodents yet recorded.
