This chapter discusses the phylogenetic relationships among African suids. It describes cranial and dentognathic suid remains from the late Miocene of the Middle Awash study area. The available fossil suid sample has increased enormously since the 1980s with the discovery of specimens from sites such as Lothagam and the Middle Awash. The chapter suggests that these collections provide deeper insights into the systematics and diversity of African tetraconodont suids during the late Miocene and early Pliocene.

Keywords:   phylogenetic relationships, African suids, suids, Middle Awash, Lothagam, tetraconodont, Miocene, Pliocene
