A research team from the Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont (ICP) analyzes the navicular bone of the small primate Anchomomys frontanyensis, a species described in Sant Jaume de Frontanyà (Berguedà, Catalunya) in 2011. The morphology of this fossil remains suggest that this species would be more agile than other members of its group, the adapiforms. In recent years, research on this paleontological site has provided several new species of Eocene primates (between 55 and 33 million years ago).
