Mammalia - Rodentia - Gliridae

Taxonomy
Gliravus priscus was named by Stehlin and Schaub (1951) [Bosma and De Bruijn (1979: 371) selected as 'holotype'one of the specimens illustrated by Stehlin & Schaub (1951). This is, of course, a lectotype selection.]. Its type specimen is DB 486C, a tooth (m2 inf.), and it is a 3D body fossil. It is the type species of Glamys.

It was recombined as Glamys priscus by Vianey-Liaud (1989), Astibia et al. (2000) and Freudenthal (2004).
