Species Limits and Phylogenetic Relationships in the Didelphid Marsupial Genus Thylamys Based on Mitochondrial DNA Sequences and Morphology
Thylamys species limits are examined, morphological diagnoses are provided, information about geographic distributions is summarized, comment on previous misidentifications, and historical-biogeographic scenarios are briefly considered with a focus on dispersal events across the Andes.
Additions to the Paraguayan mammal fauna: the first records of two marsupials (Didelphimorphia, Didelphidae) with comments on the alpha taxonomy of Cryptonanus and Philander
Two new species of marsupials are added to the fauna of Paraguay, Philander opossum and Cryptonanus unduaviensis, which improve the understanding of both species in South America.
Chapter 11. The Six Opossums of Félix de Azara: Identification, Taxonomic History, Neotype Designations, and Nomenclatural Recommendations
The nomenclatural status of Azara's opossums is reviewed and relevant issues that affect binomial usage are discussed, including the rediscovery of the holotype of Caluromys lanatus and designate neotypes to preserve current usage of the names Thylamys macrurus and T. pusillus.
Occipital condyle width (OCW) is a highly accurate predictor of body mass in therian mammals
Background Body mass estimation is of paramount importance for paleobiological studies, as body size influences numerous other biological parameters. In mammals, body mass has been traditionally
First record of Microcavia jayat (Rodentia, Caviidae) in La Rioja province, northwestern Argentina
The genus Microcavia includes five living species of caviomorph rodents endemic to southern South America. Microcavia jayat, the most recently described species, was recorded in only seven localities
Siphonaptera associated with small mammals (Didelphimorphia, Chiroptera, and Rodentia) from northwestern Argentina
The similarity analysis among eco-regions showed a major faunistic congruence between the Yungas and the Dry Chaco, and the greatest differentiation was given by the High Andes and Puna compared with the other eco- Regions, probably because these areas are the least surveyed and with the lowest richness and abundance of small mammal species.
Marmosa constantiae (Didelphimorphia: Didelphidae)
The Marmosa constantiae O. Thomas, 1904, is a medium-sized didelphid commonly called the white-bellied woolly mouse opossum that is poorly known but relatively widespread in central South America.
Diversity and richness of small mammals at a well-conserved site of The Yungas in Jujuy Province, Argentina
Abstract We present the results obtained from 12 small-mammal surveys conducted between 1996 and 2013 in “Finca Las Capillas”, province of Jujuy, Argentina. This region has been formally recognized
