Several taxa in the Pit locality are represented by very few specimens or by material that is presently impossible to identify to the species level. Nevertheless, these taxa are important in characterizing the Pleistocene fauna. This chapter summarizes the criteria that were used to identify these specimens, which include soricids (shrews), leporids (rabbits and hares), and geomyoid rodents (gophers).

Keywords:   Pit, Pleistocene fauna, soricids shrews, leporids, rabbits, hares, geomyoid rodents, gophers
