Kurdalagonus is a genus of cetotheriid mysticete in the subfamily Cetotheriinae from the Miocene of the Russian Caucasus. [1] "Kurdalagonus" adygeicus has been reassigned to Mithridatocetus, while the referral of " Cetotherium " maicopicum to Kurdalagonus has been questioned. Mithridatocetus is a genus of cetotheriid mysticete in the subfamily Cetotheriinae. Known specimens have been found in marine deposits in Crimea, Ukraine, and the Russian Caucasus. [1].

The fossil record of Cetacea—whales, dolphins extends back more than 50 million years ().Hundreds of species are known, based on fossils from near-shore to deep-ocean marine strata and, occasionally, freshwater sediments. The question of how land animals evolved into ocean-going behemoths has been a mystery for a long time, owing to gaps in the fossil record. However, recent discoveries in Pakistan have managed to. Cetacean Fossils Our Collections: Collections, Shark Fossils, Stingray Fossils, Cetacean Fossils A Whale of a Challenge The Order Cetacea includes whales, dolphins, and porpoises and are subdivided into two sub-orders, the Odontocete (toothed cetaceans) and the Mysticete (baleen cetaceans). Based on an almost complete skeleton (skull, scapula fragment, humerus, ulna, radius, 7 cervical, 12 thoracic, 17 lumbar and caudal vertebrae, sternum, and hyoid), a new cetotheriid, Zygiocetus nartorum gen. et sp. nov., is described. It comes from the Middle Sarmatian beds (Upper Miocene) of the Krasnooktyabr’sk Formation of the Polevoe 1 locality (Republic of Adygea).
