The arvicolines are a taxonomically diverse assemblage of rodents that includes voles, lemmings, and muskrats and their extinct kin. This chapter presents a summary of the fossil arvicoline rodent specimens recovered from each locality in Porcupine Cave and explains the dental characteristics that were used to identify them. It describes the distribution of each taxon within Porcupine Cave, as well as the known geographic and temporal distribution. The chapter also discusses the biodiversity, biogeography, and chronologic significance of arvicoline rodents.
