AbstractIn this paper the various species and populations attributed to the genus Progonomys Schaub, 1938 are revised. Valerymys Michaux, 1969 is considered to be synonymous with Occitanomys Michaux, 1969, since the type-species V. ellenbergeri (Thaler, 1966) was included in Occitanomys by Aguilar et al. (1986a). Other species from Western Europe that had been included in Valerymys cannot be transferred to Occitanomys. They are the descendants of Progonomys cathalai, for which we create the new genus Huerzelerimys, that includes the known species H. vireti (Schaub, 1938), H. turoliensis (Michaux, 1969) and H. oreopitheci (Engesser, 1989), and the new species H. minor. En este trabajo se aborda una revisión de las distintas poblaciones y especies attribuidas al género Progonomys Schaub, 1938. Valerymys Michaux, 1969 es sinónimo de Occitanomys Michaux, 1969, ya que la especie tipo V. ellenbergeri (Thaler, 1966) ha sido incluida en Occitanomys por Aguilar et al. (1986a). Otras especies de Europa Occidental, que habían sido incluidas en Valerymys, no pueden ser consideradas Occitanomys. Se trata de descendientes de Progonomys cathalai que incluimos en el nuevo genero Huerzelerimys, al que pertenecen: H. vireti (Schaub, 1938), H. turoliensis (Michaux, 1969) y H. oreopitheci (Engesser, 1989), además de H. minor sp. nov.
