The evolutionary history of the primates can be traced back 65 million years. One of the oldest known primate-like mammal species, the Plesiadapis, came from North America; another, Archicebus, came from China. Other similar basal primates were widespread in Eurasia and Africa during the tropical conditions of the Paleocene and Eocene.Purgatorius is the genus of the four extinct species believed to be the earliest example of a primate or a proto-primate, a primatomorph precursor to the Plesiadapiformes, dating to as old as 66 million years ago.

  • L'ordre des Primates constituerait l'une des plus anciennes lignées de mammifères placentaires, dont l'apparition daterait de 80 à 65 millions d'années. Issus d'un ancêtre vraisemblablement insectivore (dont aucun fossile n'atteste l'existence à l'heure actuelle) qui évoluait au Crétacé supérieur, les Primates ont connu une radiation évolutive importante tout au long du Cénozoïque. Plusieurs divergences successives ont conduit à la formation des cinq grands ensembles de primates actuels : les lémuriens, les loris et galagos, les tarsiers, les singes du Nouveau Monde (Platyrrhiniens), et ceux de l'Ancien Monde (Catarrhiniens).
