AbstractDeinogalerix koenigswaldi nov. gen., nov. spec. is the largest insectivore known so far. It is represented by an almost complete skeleton and a good number of isolated teeth and bones. These prove a considerable sexual dimorphism. It is supposed that these animals were scavengers. The time-range of Deinogalerix is within the Upper Miocene.
