Abstract

Some complete tooth rows and about one hundred isolated teeth enabled the identification of the deinothere of the Vallesian site Montredon (Hérault) as Deinotherium giganteum KAUP 1829, mainly by comparisons with the likewise Vallesian sample of the type locality Eppelsheim (Rheinhessen, F.R.G.).
Scatterdiagrams of the teeth show the importance of allometry during the phyletic size increase of the European deinotheres.
Some taphonomic problems of the Montredon deinothere are briefly mentioned.
