dc.description.abstract We review the nonhylobatid hominoid fauna currently known from all significant Pleistocene sites in Vietnam. Almost all of the sample examined consists of isolated teeth. In a previous study of material from the cave of Tham Khuyen (Schwartz et al., 1994) we identified, but did not name, a new species of Pongo as well as a new genus and species of thick-enameled, nonhominid hominoid. These new taxa are named and characterized in this contribution, as are four new subspecies of Pongo pygmaeus. We additionally note sparse evidence for other taxa whose affinities are not determinable on the basis of available specimens. Most large-bodied hominoid fossils from Vietnam are attributable to the genus Pongo; at most sites only the species Pongo pygmaeus is found. Positive evidence is extremely rare for both Homo and Gigantopithecus in the Pleistocene of Vietnam. en_US
