Rodent cheek teeth from the Hambach open-cast lignite mine are described and assigned to . Since the species is biostratigraphically restricted to the Neogene mammal units MN 4 to MN 5, the occurrence of within the Rhenish main seam confirms a late Early to early Middle Miocene age for the Ville-Formation. The occurrence of in the Lower Rhine Embayment is also of biogeographic interest, since it is the northwestern-most record of in Europe.

German
Aus dem Braunkohlen-Tagebau Hambach in der Niederrheinischen Bucht werden Molaren von Anomalomys minor beschrieben. Der Nachweis dieser Nager-Art im Rheinischen Hauptflöz bestätigt das spät-untermiozäne bis früh-mittelmiozäne Alter der VilleFormation, da A. minor auf die Neogen-Säugetiereinheiten MN 4 bis MN 5 beschränkt ist. Der Nachweis ist auch biogeographisch von Interesse, da es sich um die nordwestlichsten Funde von Anomalomys in Europa handelt.
