A b s t r a c t . Numerous remains of the genus Geotrypus from the Pliocene and Pleistocene layers of Zamkowa Dolna Cave a t Olsztyn near Częstochowa, as well as those of Kadzielnia and K am yk have been identified and the new species ?Geotrypus copernici n. sp. is described. A description of the rem ains of Scaptonyx (?) dolichochir G a il l a r d , 1899, from the Lower Pliocene of Podlesice and the Middle Pliocene of Rębielice Królewskie I is also given. A bundant rem ains of the genus… 

Review of the Pliocene and Pleistocene Talpidae (Soricomorpha, Mammalia) of Poland

The list of Talpidae species from the Pliocene and Early Pleistocene of Poland now includes Condylura kowalskii, C. izaballae, Parascalops fossilis, and Skoczeni, and the number of species in each of the localities are discussed.

Late Pliocene Erinaceidae and Talpidae (Mammalia: Insectivora) from Varshets (North Bulgaria)

The described insectivore assemblage is in- dicative of a temperate and humid climate, similar to the present-day conditions in SE Bulgaria.

New records of Parascalops, Neurotrichus and Condylura [Talpinae, Insectivora] from the Pliocene of Poland

Four humeri, two from the locality of Podlesice (early Pliocene, early Ruscinian MN 14) and two from Weze 1 A (Pliocene, Ruscinian MN 15) are the basis for description of a new species of Parascalops

Moles [Talpidae] from the late Middle Miocene of South Germany

The presence of Urotrichini in nearly all samples, albeit scanty, suggests a forestal environment within the range of the owls, which preyed on them.

Pliocene small mammals (Mammalia, Lipotyphla, Chiroptera, Lagomorpha, Rodentia) from Muselievo (North Bulgaria)

The micromammals from the sediment filling of an ancient cave located near the village of Muselievo (Pleven district) are studied and it can be supposed that the climate was similar to the recent one.

Systematics and macroevolution of extant and fossil scalopine moles (Mammalia, Talpidae)

Examination of biogeographical patterns does not unambiguously determine the geographical origin of Scalopini, but it does support multiple transcontinental colonization events across Asia, Europe and North America.

When moles became diggers: Tegulariscaptor gen. nov., from the early Oligocene of south Germany, and the evolution of talpid fossoriality

A systematic revision of the species Geotrypus minor from the early Oligocene of Germany using two-dimensional geometric morphometrics on the humerus, and cladistic analyses using two different character matrices suggests a distinct generic allocation for this species based on its unique humeral shape.

Karyotype evolution of shrew moles (Soricomorpha: Talpidae)

Compared karyotypes of S. fusicaudus and N. gibbsii suggest that rapid chromosomal reorganization occurred in the karyotype evolution of this species, possibly due to founder or bottleneck events.

Phylogenetic relationships within the family Talpidae (Mammalia: Insectivora)

The phylogenetic relationships within the family Talpidae (Mammalia, Insectivora) were inferred from parsimonious analysis of 55 morphological characters, which were collected from 43 skulls of 22
