Lemming voles of the subgenus Mictomys have never been recorded from north-central United States, although they might be expected to occur there judging from records of the species Synaptomys (Mictomys) borealis from southern Manitoba. Recently, examination of specimens in the collection of the Minnesota Museum of Natural History reveals that Synaptomys borealis does occur in north-central United States for we have found the following specimens referable to that species: one immature female (No. 951, MMNH) from Williams, Lake of the Woods County, Minnesota, collected by Gustav Swanson, August 5, 1932; one adult male (No. 2552, MMNH) from Warroad, Roseau County, Minnesota, collected by H. L. Gunderson and B. J. Hayward, July 27,1948.
