But in Velay, in strata containing some species of fossil mammalia common to the Limagne, no less than four species of Palaeothere have been found by M. Aymard, and one of these is generally supposed to be identical with Palaeotherium magnum, an undoubted Upper Eocene fossil, of the Paris gypsum, the other three being peculiar.
The Palaeothere above alluded to resembled the living tapir in the form of the head, and in having a short proboscis, but its molar teeth were more like those of the rhinoceros.
The Palaeotheres were more or less between the horse and the tapir in structure; the Anoplotheres between the tapir and the ruminant.
