The Middle Awash late Miocene fauna includes at least four elephantid, two gomphothere, and one deinothere species. This record documents an early diversification among the elephantids and includes the earliest record of the genus Primelephas. This chapter presents a revision of the late Miocene proboscideans from the Middle Awash. The chapter describes the species-level taxonomy of the late Miocene proboscideans which will provide the basis for future work addressing the systematics, biostratigraphy, and biogeography of the late Neogene African elephantoids.

Keywords:   elephantid, gomphothere, deinothere, Primelephas, proboscideans, elephantoids
