DURING the course of our research on the paleobiology and systematics ofmammalian remains of the Santa Cruz Formation of Argentine Patagonia,we becameaware of differences in the early literature dealing with Santacrucian (late Early Miocene) mammals. Although literature errors are not uncommon, they are often only an inconvenience. However, in this case it involves an article in which numerous taxa were erected, so that particular attention must be paid to the circumstances of its publication. The article in question is Florentino Ameghino?s (1894a, b) Énumération synoptique des espèces de mammifères fossiles des formations éocènes de Patagonie. This article was published formally in 1893 in the Boletín de la Academia Nacional de Ciencias en Córdoba and also in 1894, with identical title and text but different pagination, as an offprint.
