A new fossil sciurid, Citellus kimballensis, is described. This new species was found in the Kimball Formation, uppermost Ogallala (very late Pliocene) at the University of Nebraska State Museum Collecting Locality Cn-1O1, northeast of Sidney, Cheyenne County, Nebraska. Characters of the dentition and skull of C. kimballensis are compared with those of other species of the genus, and with those of Cynomys.
