  • Abstract:  Recent publications have described the diverse, well-preserved samples of Plio-Pleistocene mammalian species recovered during three different phases of excavation into in situ and ex situ deposits at the Gondolin locality. This paper provides the first description of the rodent remains attributed to the extinct porcupine species, Hystrix makapanensis, recovered from the Gondolin GD 2 in situ and GD A ex situ deposits. The H. makapanensis sample from the GD 2 deposits is the first formally described occurrence of the species from a South Africa fossil locality outside the Makapansgat Limeworks deposits, and includes specimens that preserve previously undocumented cranial features as well as the first postcranial elements attributable to the species.
