Field studies concerned primarily with distribution of the short-tailed shrew, Blarina brevicauda, in eastern Nebraska have resulted in noteworthy records of several other species of small mammals. These field studies, which were supported by a grant from the Kansas Academy of Science, entailed extensive trapping of prairie habitats in Cass County, approximately 15 miles west of the Missouri River. In addition to the species discussed below, specimens of Reithrodontomys megalotis, Peromyscus maniculatus, P. leucopus, and Mus musculus were obtained at several localities. All catalogue numbers in the following accounts refer to specimens deposited in the Museum of Natural History, The University of Kansas.
