  • The subfamily Dendromurinae has occupied various systematic positions in the different classifications of the Muroidea and different genera have been attributed to this taxon (e.g. Lindsay 1988, Chaline et al. 1977). For example, the genus Deomys (Thomas, 1888), originally believed to be a link between the cricetid and murid rodents, has subsequently been attributed to the Dendromurinae. Alston, 1896 ; to its own subfamily Deomyinae Ellerma'n, 1941, before being reallocated to the Dendrom… CONTINUE READING
