"Kumar, Kishor"

Kumar, Kishor: SEE ALSO Sahni & Kumar, 1980; Sahni et al., 1980, 1983. (detail)
Sahni, Ashok; Kumar, Kishor (detail)
Lower Eocene sirenian, Ishatherium subathuensis, gen. et sp. nov. from the type area, Subathu Formation, Subathu, Simla Himalayas, H. P.
Jour. Pal. Soc. India 23/24: 132-135. 3 figs. June 1980.
–Describes Ishatherium subathuensis on the basis of a partial second lower molar. The referred material includes an upper incisor and some "limb and girdle bones", which are not described although they are said to indicate amphibious habits. The ?sir. vertebra described by Sahni et al. (1980) is here redescribed, and Ishatherium is said to be close to the ancestral sir.-moeritheriid stock.
  Subsequent writers have regarded Ishatherium not as a sir. but rather as an anthracobunid proboscidean (see Wells & Gingerich, 1983).
Sahni, Ashok; Kumar, Kishor; Tiwari, B. N. (detail)
Lower Eocene marine mammal (Sirenia) from Dharampur, Simla Himalayas, H. P.
Current Science (Bangalore, India) 49(7): 270-271. 1 fig. Apr. 5, 1980.
–Reports an isolated first thoracic vertebra from the Subathu Formation. See also Sahni & Kumar (1980).
Sahni, Ashok; Bhatia, S. B.; Kumar, Kishor (detail)
Faunal evidence for the withdrawal of the Tethys in the Lesser Himalaya, northwestern India.
Bol. Soc. Pal. Italiana 22(1-2): 77-86. 3 figs.
–Briefly compares the (previously undescribed) pelvic bone of Ishatherium to that of Protosiren, concluding that the former indicates amphibious habits (81).
Kumar, Kishor (detail)
Anthracobune aijiensis nov. sp. (Mammalia: Proboscidea) from the Subathu Formation, Eocene from NW Himalaya, India.
Geobios 24(2): 221-239. 4 tabs. 4 figs. 3 pls.
–Reaffirms that Ishatherium subathuensis is a sir. and not an anthracobunid, and that it is Ypresian in age rather than Lutetian (234-237).
