"Anagale gobiensis, new genus and species, is described on the basis of remarkably well preserved skull and jaws and much of the skeleton. 2. It is shown to be closely related to the Tupaiidae but referable to an extinct and non-ancestral family Anagalidae. 3. It is not closely related to any previously knwon fossil insectivores, none of which appears to be certainly referable to the Tupaioidea. 4. It is not intermediate between the Tupaiidae and Erinaceidae, being definitely allied with the former, but tends in some degree to strengthen the evidence of their remote common origin. 5. It tends more definitely to link the Tupaioidea and the Lemuroidea. 6. But it proves that the Tupaioidea have been distant from all other groups of mammals from a long time antecendent to the basal Oligocene"--P. 21.
