Abstract

Revision of Democricetodon (excluding D. sulcatus and D. cf gaillardi), Fahlbuschia, Pseudofahlbuschia and Renzimys from
the Aragonian type area (Spain) results in the synonymization of the four genera, Democricetodon prevailing according to the rules of priority. Democricetodon decipiens is synonymized with D. corcolesi, D. darocensis with D. larteti, and Renzimys bilobatus with D. crusafonti. One new species of Democricetodon (D. moralesi n.sp.) is defined.Two partly contemporaneous evolutionary lineages are recognized: the Democricetodon hispanicus - D. lacombai lineage (D. hispanicus-D. moralesi n.sp.-D. jordensi-D. lacombai) and the Democricetodon
franconicus - D. crusafonti lineage (D. franconicus-D. koenigswaldi-D. larteti- D. crusafonti).
[RESUMEN]
La revisión realizada del material de los géneros Democricetodon (excluidos D. sulcatus y D. cf gaillardi), Fahlbuschia, Pseudofahlbuschia and Renzimys del área tipo del Aragoniense (España) ha dado como resultado la sinonimia de los cuatro géneros, siendo Democricetodon el que tiene la prioridad. Democricetodon decipiens se ha sinonimizado con D. corcolesi, D. darocensis con D. larteti, y Renzimys bilobatus con D. crusafonti. Una nueva especie de Democricetodon (D. moralesi n.sp.) ha sido definidas. Dos líneas evolutivas, parcialmente contemporáneas han sido reconocidas: La línea Democricetodon hispanicus - lacombai (D. hispanicus-D. moralesi n.sp.-D. jordensi-D. lacombai) y la línea Democricetodon franconicus - D. crusafonti (D. franconicus-D. koenigswaldi-D. larteti- D. crusafonti).
