Sphaerodromiidae is reported from the Paleocene of Texas with Dromilites? cardwelli (Armstrong, Nyborg, Bishop, Ossó-Morales, and Vega, 2009) new combination. The species is a sphaerodromiid but is too poorly preserved for confident generic placement. The morphology of the preserved sternum of D.? cardwelli confirms placement in Sphaerodromiidae. Spaerodromiidae was previously known from the Cretaceous and Eocene; thus no range extension occurs.
