Abstract

Microtus (Tyrrhenicola) henseli is an endemic fossil vole widespread in Sardinia and Corsica during Middle Pleistocene and Holocene. Though different evolutionary degrees have been recognised between different populations of Tyrrhenicola its systematic position is still controversial. Some analyses on several populations of Tyrrhenicola from the recently studied fissure fillings of Monte Tuttavista have been carried out, the studied populations show different morphotype distributions that allowed recognising differences in evolutionary degrees helping the sequencing of the different populations.
