AbstractThe fossil Proboscidea from the Spanish Turolian (Upper Miocene) sites of Crevillente 2 (MN11) and Crevillente 15 and 16 (MN12) are described. The mastodont from Crevillente 2 is assigned to Tetralophodon cf. longirostris ‘grandincisivoid form’, recognised for the first time in the Iberian Peninsula, and that from Crevillente 16 to Tetralophodon longirostris. The Deinotheriidae from Crevillente 2 and Crevillente 15 are identified as Deinotherium giganteum and Deinotherium sp., respectively. The status of ‘Mastodon’ grandincisivus and the ‘grandincisivoid forms’ of Gomphotherium and Tetralophodon are discussed.
