We are deeply indebted to our dive team, the Dominican Republic Speleological Society, especially Phillip Lehman, Cristian Pittaro, Vika Alexandrova and Dave Pratt, for their tireless work in recovering fossils. We thank Director Christian Martinez of the Museo del Hombre Dominicano for supporting this project. Eileen Westwig (American Museum of Natural History), William Stanley (Field Museum of Natural History), and Amanda Millhouse (National Museum of Natural History) helped us access extant comparative specimens and the G.S. Miller Collection (Smithsonian). Thanks to John Hellstrom (University of Melbourne) for the U-series discussions, Jon Woodhead for comments on the manuscript and the Varsha Pilbrow for providing intercontinental transport. This project was funded by several grants to A.L.R from Waitt/National Geographic Society, L.S.B. Leakey Foundation, PSC CUNY and the Tow Family Foundations (Brooklyn College); by a grant from the Australian Research Council to R.P.; by the Grand Valley State University Student Summer Scholars Program to M.T. and A.M.; and by an Explorers Club Exploration Fund Grant to S.B.C.
