AbstractOne mandibular fragment and 10 isolated cheek teeth of a moderately sized porcupine from the well-known site Longgupo in China are described. These are the first fossil finds in China, which may be allocated to Hystrix brachyura. They have a late Pliocene to earliest Pleistocene age, representing the oldest fossil high-crowned porcupine species in China.
