Sanitheres are poorly understood suiforms of small body size. Recent advances in knowledge have been made, especially regarding their postcranial skeleton, but, apart from dentognathic remains, the cranium remains incompletely known. Field work in the Middle Miocene Aka Aiteputh Formation, near Baragoi, Kenya, has resulted in the recovery of a snout and a crushed neurocranium of Diamantohyus nadirus which throw a great deal of light on the systematic affinities of the sanitheres, but do not completely resolve their phylogenetic status.
