Microparamys wyomingensis Wood is reassigned to the genus Paramys on the basis of material collected in Sublette County, Wyoming, during 1966 and 1967. Examination of Paramys wyomingensis suggests a relationship to the Wasatchian paramyine Paramys copei copei. It is possible that Paramys wyomingensis of the Bridger is ancestral to the early Oligocene Prosciurus.
