The goal of this project is to identify and describe two distinct fossil primate species that have been recovered from the Honeycombs region of the Bighorn Basin in Wyoming.  These fossils have all been discovered within the earliest Eocene (55 million years ago). This interval is especially significant since it is marked by substantial global warming.  These species are new, previously unknown to science.  The one species was only previously known from a single specimen and these new samples will vastly increase our knowledge of this poorly understood taxa.
