dc.description.abstract New fossils of the pinnipediform <I>Pteronarctos</I> from the Miocene Astoria Formation of coastal Oregon provide more information on the cranial anatomy, interrelationships, and higher level phylogeny of this taxon. Additional skulls are referred to a previously described species, <I>P. goedertae</I> (Barnes, 1989). A previously named species, <I>Pteronarctos piersoni</I> (Barnes, 1990) is recognized as the junior synonym of <I>P. goedertae</I>. The genus <I>Pacificotaria</I> (Barnes, 1992) is synonymized with <I>Pteronarctos</I>. The genus <I>Pteronarctos</I> is removed from the "Enaliarctinae" (&amp;equals; "Enaliarctidae") and recognized as the sister group of the Pinnipedia (including Otariidae, Odobenidae, <I>Allodesmus, Desmatophoca, Pinnarctidion</I>, and Phocidae). en
