Neodon is a genus of rodent in the family Cricetidae. Species within the Neodon genus are classified as relics of the Pleistocene epoch because the occlusal patterns resemble the extinct Allophaiomys. The Neodon genus contains the following species:

  • Juniper vole (Neodon juldaschi)
  • Chinese scrub vole (Neodon irene)
  • Sikkim mountain vole (Neodon sikimensis)
  • Forrest's mountain vole (Neodon forresti)
  • Neodon linzhiensis
