Description:

Four humeri, two from the locality of Podlesice (early Pliocene, early Ruscinian MN 14) and two from Węże 1 A (Pliocene, Ruscinian MN 15) are the basis for description of a new species of Parascalops fossilis sp. n. In Węże 2 (Pliocene, Ruscinian-Vilanyian MN 15/16) one M1 and one humerus of Neurotrichus minor sp. n. was found. Many remains of Condylura kowalskii Skoczeń, 1976, come from the same locality as well. A single humerus of Neurotrichus polonicus Skoczeń, 1980, has been found in Kielniki 3 B (late Villanyian MN 17). All the above mentioned Talpidae Skoczeń, 1980, belong to the recent North American endemic genera and appeared as single species exclusively. The problem of probable migration or development of convergent lines is discussed.
