"The principal points brought out in the foregoing paper may be briefly summarized as follows: (1) The tracing of the Daphaenus ancestry back into the Wasatch Eocene by way of Prodaphaenus and Uintacyon, which latter has always been considered a creodont. (2) The establishment of the relationship of Daphaenus to Temnocyon, and that of Temnocyon to the living genus Cyon. (3) Tracing the ancestry of the Canis-Cynodictis line back into the Eocene through Procynodictis and Vulpavus. (4) Some additional points in the structure of Cynodictis. (5) The descent of certain South American foxes from North American Miocene species, with the establishment of a new genus, Nothocyon, for their reception. (6) Classification of the Miocene genera of the Canidae. (7) The discovery of the origin of the Procyonidae from the Canidae through the new genus Phlaocyon. (8) The discovery of the genus Viverravus and the establishment of a new family"--P. 138.
