This note describes a tooth of the extinct lagurine vole genus Borsodia (Arvicolidae, Rodentia) from a borehole at Eindhoven in the Netherlands. Borsodia was previously reported for the first time from the Netherlands on the basis of a tooth dredged from the Oosterschelde (Reumer et al. 2005). Attention is drawn to the use of Borsodia for stratigraphic correlation and climatic interpretation.
