Abstract

The present paper is the last part of the series describing the shrew genera identified from the late Early Pleistocene Somssich Hill 2 locality. Two species – Asoriculus gibberodon (Petényi, 1864) and Neomys newtoni Hinton, 1911 – are reported here with taxonomic descriptions and with summaries of their European records. Th e number of the shrew species of the locality increased to nine with these new ones. Mainly the water shrew (Neomys), but very likely Asoriculus (its probable ancestor) as well indicates the presence of open water body in the surroundings of the site.
