Recent collecting in the upper part of the Brule Formation (Upper Oligocene) in the Badlands National Monument has produced a large sample of the mole, Proscalops tertius Reed. The dental formula of P. tertius is tentatively I 1, 2, 3/1?, 2, 3, C 1/1?, P 2, 3, 4/1?, 2, 3, 4, M 1, 2, 3/1, 2, 3. The first upper incisor and lower antemolar dentition are described for the first time. The holotype of P. tertius was probably collected from the uppermost Brule Formation.
