Mitogenomic Phylogeny, Diversification, and Biogeography of South American Spiny Rats
TLDR
Using Illumina shotgun sequencing, a robust phylogenetic framework is inferred that reveals several newly supported nodes as well as the tempo of the higher level diversification of these rodents, and leads to a new higher level classification of two subfamilies: Euryzygomatomyinae and Echimyinae.
Range extension and first record of Euryzygomatomys spinosus (Rodentia, Echimyidae) in the Brazilian Cerrado
We present herein the first record of Euryzygomatomys spinosus (G. Fischer, 1814) in the Brazilian Cerrado, based on two adult male specimens collected in a “campo limpo” (dry grassland) area at
Rodents of the Caribbean: origin and diversification of hutias unravelled by next-generation museomics
TLDR
It is found that Capromyidae are nested within Echimyidae (spiny rats) and should be considered a subfamily thereof and estimated that the split between hutias and Atlantic Forest spiny rats occurred 16.5 million years ago, which would suggest that during the Early Miocene, an echimYid-like ancestor colonized the Greater Antilles from an eastern South American source population via rafting.
Evolution of the Rodents: The history of South American octodontoid rodents and its contribution to evolutionary generalisations
TLDR
Remarkably, when considered in combination with their apparently narrower range of morphological innovation, Octodontoidea is the most diverse clade of hystricomorph rodents.
Clyomys laticeps (Rodentia: Echimyidae)
TLDR
C Clyomys laticeps, the broad-headed spiny rat, is a medium-sized semifossorial rodent with spinous pelage, reduced tail, short limbs, and long powerful claws that make C. laticeps unique among echimyid rodents.
Rediscovering a forgotten rodent of Patagonia and its phylogenetic implications
Cephalomyidae is an enigmatic caviomorph ‘family’ recorded in the Deseadan–Colhuehuapian SALMAs (South American Land Mammal Age) of Bolivia and Argentina. The validity and phylogenetic relationships
Late Pleistocene echimyid rodents (Rodentia, Hystricognathi) from northern Brazil.
TLDR
The fossil echimyids found in karst deposits from southern Tocantins, northern Brazil are described and contribute to the understanding of the ancient diversity of rodents of this region.
Taxonomic implications of morphological variation in three species of Trinomys (Rodentia: Echimyidae) from eastern Brazil.
Trinomys is a genus of terrestrial spiny rats from the Atlantic Forest, and three species occur in the state of Espírito Santo, eastern Brazil: T. gratiosus, T. paratus, and T. setosus. The levels of
The Caviomorphs: First South American Rodents
The first rodents did not arrive in South America until the mid-Eocene, at about 41 million years ago. This recent discovery makes the history of the caviomorphs extremely interesting, since the

The simultaneous diversification of South American echimyid rodents (Hystricognathi) based on complete cytochrome b sequences.
TLDR
Generic groupings that are moderately to strongly supported include the tree rats of the Brazilian Atlantic Forest (Nelomys) and Amazonia (Echimys, Makalata) and the Amazonian arboreal spiny rats Mesomys and Lonchothrix and elevation of the Atlantic Forest Trinomys to generic status is supported.
A New Species of Atlantic Forest Tree Rat, Genus Phyllomys (Rodentia, Echimyidae) from Southern Brazil
TLDR
A new species of Phyllomys is named and described based on specimens collected in southern Brazil, closely related to P. dasythrix and diagnosed by a unique combination of external, cranial, and karyotypic characters.

My topic — the relationships, origin and dispersal of hystricognathous rodents — is complicated by a very considerable amount of confusion among authors as to what should be included in the Suborder

Evolutionary diversification of spiny rats (genus Trinomys, Rodentia: Echimyidae) in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil
TLDR
The proposed Late Pleistocene refugia in the Atlantic Forest cannot account for the divergence of the clades of Trinomys, but most likely shaped the modern distribution of species.

TLDR
Malcolm C. McKenna and Susan K. McKenna inherited the project from Simpson and, with Bell, has constructed a completely updated hierarchical system that reflects the genealogy of Mammalia.
