Abstract

A new species of Gerbillus (Gerbillurus) is described from Gobabcb, South West Africa. This new species exhibits the maximum cranial size and bullar hypertrophy known for the subgenus. The skins of Gerbillus tytonis are described for the first time Gerbillus tytonis was known previously only by cranial elements taken from owl pellets.
