Since the Amebelodontinae were first announced (Barbour 1927), a number of examples of the genus Amebelodon have presented themselves in various parts of Nebraska, Colorado, and in several places in Kansas. Thus its range has already been materially extended, many skeletal parts added, and the hope kindled that knowledge of this remarkable group of proboscideans is destined to be greatly enriched within the next few years. As may be seen in the accompanying lists of the known parts of Amebelodon preserved in various museums, there are already at hand the bones necessary for the assemblage of a nearly complete composite skeleton from which a fair restoration of the creature in life could be drawn. Furthermore it may be predicted that many other species of the amebelodonts and platybelodonts are sure to be found and published.
