Popis Mokrá-Quarry (South Moravia, Czech Republic) represents a unique fossil site with an extraordinary abundance and diversity of vertebrate fossil remains. Most research on Mokrá-Quarry localities was focused on herpetofauna. Despite its relevance, the mammal fauna has not been yet studied in detail. In this work, the small mammals from one of the karstic fissures, Mokra´-Western Quarry (1/2001 Turtle Joint), are thoroughly described for the first time, including eight different taxa: Prolagus schnaitheimensis, Prolagus cf. vasconinensis, Rhinolophus cf. cluzeli, Rhinolophus cf. grivensis, Galerix sp., Aliveria aff. luteyni, Megacricetodon sp., and Melissiodon dominans. The Megacricetodon finds represent one of the first appearances of this cricetid in Central Europe and sheds light on the early evolution of the genus. Moreover, the small mammal assemblage confirms an early Miocene age (Burdigalian, MN4) for MWQ1/2001. The paleoenvironment inferred shows a dry karst landscape, with patches of woodlands and open steppe, together with marshy areas.
