ABSTRACT A new species of the didelphid marsupial genus Monodelphis is described from the eastern Bolivian province of Santa Cruz. The new species, currently known from a single specimen, belongs to the M. brevicaudata group but differs from other taxa within that clade (M. brevicaudata, M. domestica, M. glirina, M. maraxina, and M. palliolata) in size, qualitative morphological characters, and cytochrome-b gene sequences.

Short-tailed opossums of the nominotypical subgenus Monodelphis occur throughout most of the cis-Andean lowlands of tropical South America. Among its member species, a monophyletic group thatExpand
A Revised Subgeneric Classification of Short-Tailed Opossums (Didelphidae: Monodelphis)
ABSTRACT Members of the didelphid marsupial genus Monodelphis have previously been classified into species groups, but such informal subdivisions are inconsistent among authors and have contributedExpand
Additions to the Paraguayan mammal fauna: the first records of two marsupials (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae) with comments on the alpha taxonomy of Cryptonanus and Philander
TLDR
Two new species of marsupials are added to the fauna of Paraguay, Philander opossum and Cryptonanus unduaviensis, which improve the understanding of both species in South America. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of short-tailed opossums (Didelphidae: Monodelphis): taxonomic implications and tests of evolutionary hypotheses.
TLDR
Reconstructions of ancestral states of two discrete characters-dorsal pelage color pattern and habitat-suggest that the most recent common ancestor of Monodelphis was uniformly colored (with unpatterned dorsal pelage) and inhabited moist forest. Expand
The second known specimen of Monodelphis unistriata (Wagner) (Mammalia: Didelphimorphia), with redescription of the species and phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
A detailed redescription of M. unistriata is provided, the first published images of specimens, and the first account, beyond the previous few most vague and incomplete remarks, of the morphology of the skull of the opossum. Expand
Alpha taxonomy of Dromiciops (Microbiotheriidae) with the description of 2 new species of monito del monte
A previous study showed that Dromiciops gliroides has deep phylogeographic structure, with 3 allopatric and highly differentiated groups. Here, we constructed on that study by assessing theExpand
Discovery of the rare Handley’s short-tailed opossum, Monodelphis handleyi, in the threatened southern Amazonian savanna of Brazil
TLDR
The specimen reported here represents the first record of M. handleyi in Brazil and is the second known locality for the species, and there is high level of divergence found between the two distant localities, and denotes the importance of use of complementary methods for sampling small nonvolant mammals.

New records of the Spectacled Slender Opossum Marmosops ocellatus (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae) with comments on its geographic distribution limits
Abstract Marmosops ocellatus is a small didelphid marsupial that inhabits central and western South America, including Bolivia and western Brazil. In this report, we provide new distributionalExpand
Phylogeny and evolution of body mass in didelphid marsupials (Marsupialia: Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae)
TLDR
A fully resolved, highly robust phylogeny of didelphids is recovered that tested and confirmed most previously reported groupings, providing a simultaneous depiction of phylogenetic relationships for 81 % of currently recognized species and all relevant supra-specific clades. Expand
Morphological, morphometric and genetic variation among cryptic and sympatric species of southeastern South American three-striped opossums (Monodelphis: Mammalia: Didelphidae).
TLDR
This study confirmed the sympatry of these two species in a location in southeastern Brazil, presented morphological diagnostic characters to distinguish the two species, provided novel phylogenetic information on the group, and demonstrated the existence of important intra- and interspecific morphological variations related to sexual dimorphism and ontogeny in the group.
