 Comments
       
  Comment: Comments: See comments under Gliridae and discussion in Wahlert et al. (1993) for explanation behind validity of Myoxus versus Glis. Comparative vocalization data reviewed by Hutterer and Peters (2001). Evolutionary patterns of dental morphology during Pliocene and Pleistocene discussed by Nadachowski and Daoud (1995). Morphological (Wahlert et al., 1993) and molecular studies (Montgelard et al., 2003) identify Glis and Glirulus as the only extant members of Glirinae (see subfamily account)
