AbstractA description is given of the last premolar and molars of T. europaea from The Netherlands and T. occidentalis of Spain. The metrical and morphological differences between the dentitions of the two species are small. A review is given of the literature of fossil Talpa in the Pleistocene of Europe. The suggestion that T. minor is ancestral to T. caeca is rejected. T. fossilis is tentatively considered a junior synonym of T. europaea.
