Muizon, Christian de (detail)
Les vertébrés fossiles de la Formation Pisco (Pérou). Deuxième partie: Les odontocètes (Cetacea, Mammalia) du Pliocène inférieur de Sud-Sacaco.
Inst. Franç. d'Études Andines, Mém. No. 50: 1-183. 98 figs. 17 pls.
–Notes the presence of Metaxytherium calvertense in Peru as evidence of a northwest Atlantic-southeast Pacific axis of faunal distribution, and discusses other evidence supporting Domning's postulated ecological barrier between the northeast and southeast Pacific (171).
Muizon, Christian de; De Vries, T. J. (detail)
Geology and paleontology of late Cenozoic marine deposits in the Sacaco area (Peru).
Geol. Rundschau 74(3): 547-563. 1 tab. 4 figs. 2 pls. Dec. 1985.
–Mentions sirs. from the Sacaco and Montera Formations, and faunal similarities to eastern North America (560).
Muizon, Christian de; Domning, Daryl Paul (detail)
The first records of fossil sirenians in the southeastern Pacific Ocean.
Bull. Mus. Natl. Hist. Nat. (Paris) (4)7, Sect. C, no. 3: 189-213. 2 tabs. 14 figs.
–French & Spanish summs. Reports skulls of Metaxytherium calvertense from the Early to Middle Miocene Montera Formation (190-206), and a rib of an undescribed dugongid from the Early Pliocene Pisco Formation (206-209), Peru. Compares these specimens with other sirs., and discusses (209-211) their biogeographic and phylogenetic implications. Also reports the recent entry of T. manatus into the Pacific via the Panama Canal, based on a personal communication from G. G. Montgomery (209).
  The rib was reidentified as that of an aquatic sloth (Thalassocnus sp.) by Amson et al. (2015).
