This chapter discusses the presence of various genera of leporids (Hypolagus, Lepus, Sylvilagus, Brachylagus, Aztlanolagus) identified in the DMNH Velvet Room excavations and in Mark's Sink, which collectively are called the DMNH Velvet Room sites. The leporid remains of the DMNH Velvet Room sites consist mostly of isolated teeth, fragments of dentaries and maxillae, and numerous postcranial remains. The postcranial remains were identified to genus only. Lepus americanus is very common in the DMNH Velvet Room sites and is easily distinguished from most other leporids, even with fragmentary material.
