Cylindrodon galbreathi Ostrander is shown to be a junior synonym of C. nebraskensis Hough and Alf, and the first specimen of Ardynomys occidentalis is reported from the Chadronian of Nebraska. A restudy of the holotype of Cupressimus storeri Ostrander has revealed that this species is not referable to Cupressimus Storer but is referred to a new genus, Paranamatomys, which is referred to a new tribe of eomyids, the Namatomyini. Only six species of rodents have been documented from the Chadronian of Nebraska, far fewer than other faunas of the same age.
