Adapoides Troglodytes Beard, Qi, Dawson, And Li, 1994

Adapoid prosimian from the Eocene of China assigned to the adapid subfamily Adapinae; monotypic. Prior to the recovery of this fossil, adapids were known only from Europe, although there is no evidence that they originated there; the discovery of Adapoides suggests to some workers that the adapids migrated to Europe from Asia. Body mass estimated at 500g.
