Juliomys pictipes is a Sigmodontinae rodent endemic to the Atlantic Forest. Herein, we report the first records of the species on the coast of the state of Parana, filling a gap in the species’ distribution. Records at low altitudes in the eastern part of the Serra do Mar confirm that the coastal mountains are not a barrier to the species’ distribution.

First record of Juliomys ossitenuis Costa, Pavan, Leite & Fagundes, 2007 (Rodentia, Sigmodontinae) in Paraná state, southern Brazil
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,
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.
Sympatry between species of Juliomys (Rodentia: Sigmodontinae) along an altitudinal gradient in the Serra da Bocaina National Park
The karyological and molecular data provided the detection of two Juliomys species in the SBNP for the first time (J. pictipes and J. ossitenuis) and disregarded the previous record of J. rimofrons.
Small mammal community structure and vertical space use preferences in nonfragmented Atlantic Forest
A small mammal community in nonfragmented Atlantic Forest in southern Brazil is described, with Euryoryzomys russatus being the most frequently captured, while the rodent Juliomys pictipes was semiarboreal and the marsupial Marmosa paraguayana was arboreal.
Is the knowledge of bat distribution in the Atlantic Rainforest sufficient? Comments about new findings and a case study in the Paraná State coastal area, Brazil
It is suggested that the authors do not know sufficiently the bat distribution across the Atlantic Rainforest, a hotspot for biodiversity conservation, and it may be dangerous to establish low-priority areas for inventories, especially when an almost unique and biased survey method has been used.


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.
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.
Distribution extension of Phaenomys ferrugineus (Thomas, 1894), and new data on Abrawayaomys ruschii Cunha and Cruz, 1979 and Rhagomys rufescens (Thomas, 1886), three rare species of rodents (Rodentia: Cricetidae) in Minas Gerais, Brazil
Herein we report for the first time the occurrence of Phaenomys ferrugineus in the state of Minas Gerais and present additional data on the geographical distribution of Abrawayaomys ruschii and
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.
