Prolagus Pomel, 1853, was one of the longest-lasting mammalian genera (McKenna and Bell, 1997). This speciose group of large ochotonids originated in the late Oligocene from Piezodus Viret, 1929, and survived until the Holocene (Dawson, 1969; Lopez Martinez, 2001). The distinctive tooth morphology, with p3 showing an isolated anteroconid and m3 coalesced with m2, as well as specialized postcranial morphology (Dawson, 1969), differentiate Prolagus from other ochotonids and warrant its assignment… 

Prolagus Pomel, 1853 (Lagomorpha, Mammalia) in the framework of the Pliocene faunal rearrangements in central Europe

Pliocene occurrences of Prolagus Pomel, 1853 in central Europe represent anomalies out of the peri-Mediterranean area, at that time the core distribution of the genus. Though known for several

New data on the micromammalian locality of Kessani (Thrace, Greece) at the Mio-Pliocene boundary

A micromammalian fauna recovered about 15 years ago from an argillaceous bed on the south-western coast of Lake Vistonis (Xanthi-Komotini Basin, Thrace, NE Greece) and partially determined in Syrides

Comparative Morphology of Premolar Foramen in Lagomorphs (Mammalia: Glires) and Its Functional and Phylogenetic Implications

It is proposed that the premolar foramen has evolved independently in several lineages of Lagomorpha, and the development and function of this foramen in the lagomorph skull is discussed.

Dental enamel ultrastructure in Ochotona and Prolagus (Mammalia: Lagomorpha: Ochotonidae) from three late Miocene localities in Ukraine

There is almost no difference in the enamel ultrastructure between remains of different geological age and tooth position (premolars, molars), however, the lower incisor of Ochotona differs from the upper one in having a radial enamel and a HSB layer, whereas the upper have a radial and a tangential enamel.

Evolutionary and ecological success is decoupled in mammals

To identify which factors distinguish ecologically successful mammalian clades (i.e., clades with a large combined range size) from less successful ones, a large number of factors are considered.
