All records of the exotic mammalian family Ptolemaiidae are known from m of section in the lower to middle parts of the upper Eocene and lower Oligocene Jebel Qatrani Formation, Fayum.

It has long been recognized that the mammalian fauna of South America consists of three distinct parts—an ancient fraction, that reached South America in an unknown manner and from an unknown source or sources, but at least as early as the Paleocene; a modern fraction, that arrived on the continent from North and Middle America at the end of the Pliocene or the beginning of the Pleistocene, when the Panama land bridge Cited by: This formation is known world-wide for its rich and diverse mammalian fauna (e.g., Simons, ) and has long been known to be of Oligocene age (Blanckenhorn, ; Said, ).
