AbstractTwo new species of Galerix (Erinaceidae, Insectivora) are described from Lower Miocene localities of Anatolia. These species are G. saratji n. sp. from Kilçak 0, Kilçak 0", Kilçak 3A, Kilçak 3B, Harami 1 and Harami 3, and G. uenayae n. sp. from Keseköy. The recent literature on Galerix is reviewed and the phylogenetic relationships of the Early Miocene species of Galerix are elaborated.
The presence of the erinaceid Neurogymnurus in Kilçak 3A indicates that the Kilçak localities are probably older than the Harami localities.
