AbstractFossil and extant suids from Indonesia, ranging in age from Pliocene? to Recent, are revised. All material is ascribed to the genus Sus, except two species found on Sulawesi (Celebes) which belong to Babyrousa and Celebochoerus, respectively. From the ten Recent species and subspecies recognised, one from the Island of Flores - Sus heureni - is described as new. The Recent species are compared with the fossil ones on the basis of the same morphological characters. As a result uniformity is achieved in the classification of the extant and fossil suids. Based on this classification, the phylogeny, evolution and biostratigraphy of the various Javanese species of the genus Sus are discussed.
