Populations of small-eared shrews inhabiting the northern Cor- dillera Oriental of Colombia and adjoining Venezuelan highlands in the vicinity of Paramo de Tama have been referred alternatively to Cryptotis thomasi or Cryptotis meridensis. Morphological and morphometiical study of this popu- lation indicates that it belongs to neither taxon, but represents a distinct, pre- viously unrecognized species. I describe this new species as Cryptotis tamensis and redescribe C meridensis. Recognition of… 
A new small-eared shrew of the Cryptotis nigrescens-group from Colombia (Mammalia: Soricomorpha: Soricidae)
TLDR
Morphological and morphometrical studies indicate that the population inhabiting the Cordillera Oriental represents a distinct, previously unrecognized species that is described herein as Cryptotis brachyonyx.
THE HUMERUS OF CRYPTOTIS COLOMBIANA AND ITS BEARING ON THE SPECIES’ PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS (SORICOMORPHA: SORICIDAE)
TLDR
The morphology of the humerus joins the suite of characters that supports the hypotheses that C. colombiana is not a member of the C. thomasi group and that all remaining South American species form a cohesive, definable set that is probably monophyletic.
A new species of small-eared shrew of the genus Cryptotis (Mammalia, Eulipotyphla, Soricidae) from the northernmost Peruvian Andes.
TLDR
A new species of Cryptotis from the páramo and montane forests of the Tabaconas Namballe National Sanctuary near the Ecuadorian border is described, distinguished from other South American shrews by a unique set of morphological characters, including large body size, comparatively short tail, simple ectoloph of M3, and large PM4 post protocrista.
A new species of cottontail rabbit (Lagomorpha: Leporidae: Sylvilagus) from Suriname, with comments on the taxonomy of allied taxa from northern South America
TLDR
A new species of Sylvilagus is described from the lowlands of western Suriname, and putative subspecies of S. floridanus, primarily a North American taxon, nominally are recognized from the grassland plains areas of northwestern South America east of the Andes.
A New Species of Cryptotis (Mammalia, Eulipotyphla, Soricidae) from the Sierra de Perijá, Venezuelan-Colombian Andes
TLDR
The Sierra de Perijá population of small-eared shrews is described as a new species in the predominantly South American C. thomasi species group, and it is revealed that they possess a unique suite of morphological and morphometrical characters.
Distributional Records of Shrews (Mammalia, Soricomorpha, Soricidae) from Northern Central America with the First Record of Sorex from Honduras
ABSTRACT Short term surveys for small mammals in Guatemala and Honduras during 1992–2009 provided important new records for 12 taxa of shrews from 24 localities. These locality records expand the
UNA NUEVA ESPECIE DE MUSARAÑA DEL GÉNERO Cryptotis (SORICOMORPHA: SORICIDAE) DE LA SERRANÍA DEL LITORAL EN EL NORTE DE VENEZUELA
TLDR
This population represents the second species of Cryptotis with non-Andean distribution in South America, and increases to five the number of endemic mammals of the Cordillera de la Costa, Venezuelan ecoregion that currently faces serious problems of conservation by habitat loss.
The Taxonomic Status of Mazama bricenii and the Significance of the Táchira Depression for Mammalian Endemism in the Cordillera de Mérida, Venezuela
TLDR
ENM analyses revealed the existence of suitable climatic conditions for M. rufina in the Táchira Depression during the last glacial maximum and even at present, suggesting that gene flow between populations in the CO and CM may have occurred until at least the beginning of the current interglacial period and may continue today.
Morphological Variation in the Skull of Nephelomys meridensis (Rodentia, Cricetidae): Evidence for Cryptic Species in Andean Populations from Northern South America
TLDR
The data support recognizing N. meridensis as a species complex, comprising at least three still undescribed taxa from the Yacambu National Park, La Trampita, and the Tama paramo (Tama massif), and a more detailed taxonomic study of Nephelomys from Venezuela is necessary.

Diet of the cloud forest shrew Cryptotis meridensis (Insectívora: Soricidae) in the Venezuelan Andes
TLDR
The preferences for soil invertebrates found in this study confirmed the prediction that C. meridensis uses mostly a subterranean foraging mode in accord with its morphological adaptations similar to other shrews in temperate habitats.

TLDR
It is argued that the entities whose names should be placed in the Linnaean species category can be either largest recovered biparental lineages or uniparental tokogenetic arrays, and that any method used for the identification of species is bound to fail with some frequency.
