ABSTRACT. The provenance and age of camelid remains referred to Paracamelus cf. aguirrei by van der Made et al. (2002, 2003) are here questioned. These authors stated that the fossil material was collected from Ҫobanpinar, a Late Miocene locality in Central Anatolia (Turkey). Here, we demonstrate that these fossils probably came from an archeological site near Yozgat that was investigated at the same time as Ҫobanpinar. This paper provides detailed information concerning the origin of the material, and discusses differences in fossilization characters and colouration between the camel specimens and the mammalian fossils from Ҫobanpinar.
