An abundant and diverse vertebrate fauna including 15 taxa of small mammals has been recovered from the Wilson-Leonard archaeological site (41 WM 235), Williamson Co., Texas. Faunal remains are from a 4.5-m continuous stratigraphic section dating from over 9,000 YBP to <2,000 YBP. The presence of Microtus pinetorum-ochrogaster (pine vole-prairie vole), Oryzomys palustris (northern rice rat), and Blarina sp. (short-tailed shrew) in the sequence suggest moister conditions in central Texas during that time interval.
