摘要: 本文着重描述了1980-1981年采自安徽和县龙潭洞的一类䶄化石。根据臼齿的特殊性状及其与相关属种的比较,建立了一新属新种——变异华南鼠(Huannanomys variabilis)。这种田鼠可能与水䶄(Arvicola)有共同的起源,属早更新世——中更新世中晚期一绝灭的支系。

Abstract: Some specimens of arvicolid rodents were collected from the Hexian hominid site but not recorded in the list of the original mammalian fauna (Zheng Shaohua, 1982, 1983) and Huang Wanbo et al., 1982) due to their particularity unknown at that time. The genus Hexianomys named by these specimens in the monograph about the mammalian fauna from the Hexian hominid site was first mentioned by Zheng and Li in 1990 and quoted by Repenning et al. at the same time and by Zheng and Han in 1991. The name Hexianomys, however, has become invalid with the delayed publication of the monograph. In order to avoid further confusion, I have to. use a new generic and species name Huananomys variabilis to replace the previous Hexianomys complicidens and offer independently it in this paper considering its important position in the Arvicolidae. The material of this new genus in the literature include those from not only the Hexian but also the Tianqiao locality of Guizhou. In this paper, the stress will be put on the description of the specimens from the Hexian hominid site.
