In this paper a new genus of Muridae, Castromys, is described; type-species is Castromys littoralis sp. nov., from the Late Miocene of Crevillente (Alicante, Spain). Two previously described species, Karnimata inflata and Valerymys juniensis are assigned to this new genus. Its phylogeny and biostratigraphical implications are discussed.
