This chapter discusses the systematics and paleoecology of the small mammals recovered in fossiliferous localities of the Adu-Asa Formation. The micromammalian fauna from the late Miocene of the Middle Awash is diverse and documents at least 16 taxa in eight families. The chapter also includes important new fossils from the Haradaso Member of the Sagantole Formation belonging to Alilepus, Tachyoryctes, and Thryonomys. These remains, dated to approximately 4.85 Ma, are important additions to earliest Pliocene small mammal faunas.
