Lartetictis and Adroverictis, two new genera of Melinae (Mustelidae, Carnivora, Mammalia) from the miocene of the old world

The systematic revision of the European species classified in the Mionictis genus allows us to remove them from this North American genus. Mionictis dubia from the Middle Miocene of Sansan and Göriach is now the type species of Lartetictis n.g. and the recently described Mionictis ginsburgi from the Upper Miocene of Ademuz the type species of Adroverictis, genus that also includes Adroverictis schmidtkittleri, a new species proposed for the Peruniinae indet. from the Middle Miocene of the Yeni Eskihisar.
