AbstractThe literature on the Crocidosoricinae is discussed, with emphasis on the genera Crocidosorex Lavocat, 1951 and Oligosorex Kretzoi, 1959. A new species of Oligosorex, O. reumeri, is described from the Lower Miocene locality Keseköy. The other localities in this study contain a closely related species, Oligosorex aff. reumeri. Three other shrews have been found, but the material is insufficient to allow a generic allocation. The shrews designated as Soricid I and Soricid II are considered to represent one evolutionary lineage. Soricid III is a small species, comparable to ‘Crocidosorex sp.’ from the Lower Miocene locality Ulm-Westtangente (Germany).
