* Prolagidae on Mammal species of the World.
Prolagidae Gureev, 1964
Prolagidae is an extinct family within the order of lagomorphs, which also includes the Leporidae (rabbits and hares). One genus, Prolagus, is recognised within the family. This family as Prolaginae was previously considered a subfamily of Ochotonidae. Prolagus first appeared in the Early Miocene in Europe, where it survived until historical times. In Africa and Asia, the genus is known from the Miocene and Pliocene.
The genus Prolagus consists of several prehistoric species. Only one, the Sardinian Pika, survived in historical time.
