Four taxa of rodents have been recovered from submarine deposits from the southwestern Baltic Sea. A find of Arvicola terrestris represents the first record of Younger Dryas age from this region. A Late Boreal record indicates that this species was formerly a member of the Bornholm fauna. Finds of Apodemus flavicollis and Microtus sp. probably date from the Middle Holocene. the Late- and Postglacial history of these rodents in northwestern Europe is reviewed.
