Abstract

This paper records new ramapithecine and dryopithecine fossils and localities in Kenya and discusses their geological, paleoenvironmental and faunal contexts. Descriptions of the primate specimens are followed by comparisons with other Kenya and Pakistan material. The taxonomic and phylogenetic significance of the new material is discussed.
