Juliomys ossitenuis was previously known from the Atlantic Forest of southeastern Brazil, where it occurs in Dense Ombrophilous Forest. The record of the species in Floresta Nacional de Pirai do Sul, in Parana state, confirmed by morphological and cytogenetic analyses, extends its distribution about 200 km southwards. This is the first record of the species in the state and in an area of Mixed Ombrophilous Forest (Araucaria Forest).

A new species of Juliomys (Rodentia, Cricetidae, Sigmodontinae) from the Atlantic Forest of Southern Brazil

A new species of arboreal mice Juliomys is described, which seems to be endemic to the Brazilian Araucaria Forest in the Atlantic Forest biome, occurring in sympatry with its congeneric species J. ossitenuis and J. pictipes.

Juliomys rimofrons Oliveira and Bonvicino, 2002 (Rodentia: Cricetidae): Distribution extension

Two new records for Juliomys rimofrons Oliveira and Bonvicino, 2002 are identified, corresponding to individuals collected at Serra da Bocaina National Park, in the states of Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil, increasing the species’ geographic range southwards.

A new species of Juliomys (Mammalia: Rodentia: Cricetidae) from the Atlantic forest of southeastern Brazil

Molecular phylogenetic analyses confirmed that members of this new species of sigmodontine rodent form a well-supported monophyletic group, highly divergent from the other two species in the genus.

Rediscovery of Juliomys pictipes (Rodentia: Cricetidae) in Argentina: emended diagnosis, geographic distribution, and insights on genetic structure

The first new Argentinean individuals are reported, after a gap of 80 years; the new specimens -three in total- include one topotype and allow adding two new recording localities for the species.

The Wilfredomys pictipes [Rodentia: Sigmodontinae] karyotype with comments on the karyosystematics of Brazilian Thomasomyini

Karyotypic analysis of two specimens of Wilfredomys pictipes (Osgood, 1933), collected in the Atlantic forest of Sao Paulo State, Brazil, showed 2n=36/FN=34.

A new species of sigmodontine rodent from the Atlantic forest of eastern Brazil

A new sigmodontine species is described on the basis of three specimens obtained from a high-altitude locality in the Atlantic forest of eastern Brazil, and analyses of morphological characters and DNA sequence data point to its placement within the recently described genus Juliomys González, 2000.

Karyology of the Atlantic forest rodent Juliomys (Cricetidae): A new karyotype from southern Brazil

The data suggest that the karyotype described herein belongs to a new species of Juliomys, a small rodent from the family Cricetidae which inhabits the Atlantic forest and forests from Argentina to eastern Brazil.

Morphological diagnosis and geographic distribution of Atlantic Forest red-rumped mice of the genus Juliomys (Rodentia: Sigmodontinae)

An expanded diagnosis for the genus Juliomys is provided based on the analyses of the three living species, and morphological comparisons to the small bodied and bright colored rodents Rhagomys rufescens and Oligoryzomys flavescens are provided.
