Pleistocene edible dormice (Rodentia Mammalia) from Slovenia, and their relations to the present day Glis glis (Linnaeus 1766)

Jean-Pierre Aguilar, Jaques Michaux



A Pleistocene new material of dormice (Genus Glis) is described. Three morphological species are recognized on the basis of size and morphology of the teeth: Glis sackdillingensis Heller, 1930, Glis mihevci nov. sp., and Glis perkoi nov. sp. The two new species, larger than G. sackdillingensis, are morphologically less evolved than the present day Glis glis of Slovenia, which has larger teeth.
