Dental remains assigned to nimravid carnivores have been discovered in southern Thailand. These specimens come from the upper Eocene Krabi Basin that has already yielded numerous vertebrate taxa important for the knowledge of mammal evolution. The fossils described here are among the oldest remains belonging to the Nimravidae, and they are attributed to Nimravus cf. intermedius and Hoplophoneus sp. The occurrence of nimravid carnivores in Southeast Asia implies exchanges between Asia and North America during the Late Eocene, and it supports a larger geographical distribution and an origin of the family older than previously known.
