Data from: Endocranial anatomy of a new fossil porpoise (Odontoceti: Phocoenidae) from the Pliocene San Diego Formation of California

Rachel A. Racicot & Timothy Rowe
The Pliocene fossil porpoise SDSNH 65276 has extremely elongate mandibular morphology, unlike that of any marine amniote, and is superficially most similar to the living bird species known as skimmers (Rynchops sp.). Endocasts of the pterygoid sinuses and endocranial cavity were digitally segmented from high-resolution X-ray CT scans of the specimen to explore internal anatomy of functionally and phylogenetically important anatomical features of this specimen and odontocetes in general. The sinuses are similar in volume...
