  • For the first time, the eight known genera of Dendromurinae have been studied in a comparative analysis of their morphological characteristics, mainly dental ones. Phylogenetic interpretations based on comparative morphology with other African Muridae sensu lato are discussed. The taxon Dendromurinae appears to be paraphyletic and might be composed of at least 4 independent lineages. A first one includes Dendromus, Steatomys, Malacothrix and Megadendromus; a second one groups Prionomys and… CONTINUE READING
