Many distributions reflect the clear imprint of the late Wisconsinan glaciation (Smith, 1957), such as the relictual distributions of the southern bog lemming (Synaptomys cooperi
) (Wetzel, 1955; Connor, 1959) and the persistence of the boreal red-backed vole (Myodes gapperi) on mountaintops in New Mexico (Bailey, 1932).
2), American Ruby Spot dragonfly (Hetaerina americana), Bog Lemming (Synaptomys cooperi
), and Barn Owl (Tyto alba).
The rodents identified thus far include: Woodchuck (Marmota monax); Round-tailed Muskrat (Neofiber alleni); Southern Bog Lemming (Synaptomys cooperi
); Marsh Rice Rat (Oryzomys palustris); Eastern Harvest Mouse (Reithrodontomys humulis); Hispid Cotton Rat (Sigmodon hispidus); and Capybara (Hydrochaeris holmesi).

), and house mouse (Mus musculus).
In addition to the above specimens, four Synaptomys cooperi
skulls collected from owl pellets outside of the known geographic range of this species are presented here (Fig.
and Equus sp.) and four extralimital extant species: Sorex cinereus, Microtus pennsylvanicus, Synaptomys cooperi
and Zapus hudsonius (Pfau 1994).

The southern bog lemming (Synaptomys cooperi
) has not been captured, despite trapping in various areas of suitable habitat.
No significant trap "preference" was shown for northern short-tailed shrews or southern bog lemmings (Synaptomys cooperi
Despite broad distributions in eastern North America, southern bog lemmings (Synaptomys cooperi
) and woodland voles [Microtus (Pitymys) pinetorum] are less studied than other arvicoline rodents, primarily because their populations are patchy, often intermittently present, and usually low in density.
