Early Miocene Cricetidae (Rodentia, Mammalia) from Buñol (Prov. Valencia, Spain)
The Cricetidae remains from Buñol, collected by field parties of the Department of Paleontology (State University of Utrecht, The Netherlands), are described. Three previously known species have been recognized: Megacricetodon minor primitivus (Freudenthal, 1963), Democricetodon aff. hispanicus Freudenthal, 1967 and Fahlbuschia cf. koenigswaldi (Freudenthal, 1963). One new species is described: Eumyarion valencianum. The presence of M. m. primitivus points to an Early Miocene age (collongensis Assemblage-Zone).
