Rare isolated mandibular molars of a large soricid recovered from two British Middle Pleistocene deposits at Sugworth, near Oxford and West Runton, Norfolk were originally considered referable to Beremendia fissidens. Review of these teeth in the light of recent researches on the European mainland reveals that they pertain in fact to Macroneomys brachygnathus. Beremendia fissidens is now only known in Britain by one record from the Early Pleistocene (or Late Pliocene) Crag of Norfolk, dependent on the uncertain position of the Plio - Pleistocene boundary (1.8 or 2.5 Ma). Lower molars of the two taxa are here compared in detail.
