Bootstrap nodal support indices and Bayesian posterior probabilities are shown above the branches, respectively. Email this article Login required. This suggests an evolutionary trend of decreasing chromosome number within the clade. Although its range is relatively large and includes some protected areasit is patchy and threatened, and the discoverers recommend that the animal be considered ” Near Threatened drymogeomys on the IUCN Red List.

Drymoreomys – Wikipedia

It lives in the humid forest on the eastern slopes of the Serra do Mar and perhaps reproduces year-round. The upper incisors are opisthodont with the cutting surface oriented backwards and have orange to yellow enamel. Oryzomyiniwith description of two new species from eastern Brazil.

Robersonian rearrangements could have occurred in this group as well, since some species of clade D present the same FN but different 2n and number of biarmed chromosomes e. A compilation of karyological studies in representative species of clade D is presented in Table 1. Thus, some external albimaculatue traits were similar to those described for Rhipidomys and Oecomys as reported Percequillo et al. Recently, Percequillo et al.

According to a phylogenetic analysis of evidence from morphologythe nuclear gene IRBPand the mitochondrial gene cytochrome bDrymoreomys albimaculatus is most closely related to Eremoryzomys poliusan oryzomyine from northern Peru and the only species in the genus Eremoryzomys. The mesolopha crest near the middle of the labial side of the tooth, is long and well developed on each of the three upper molars.

Biological Journal of the Linnean Society On the underparts, the hairs are grayish at the base and white at the tip, except on the throat, chest, and in some specimens groin, where the hairs are entirely white [12] —a trait unique among the oryzomyines. Cytogenetics and Drymoreomsy Genetics The palate is short, with its albi,aculatus margin between the third molars. It is one of several tribes recognized within the subfamily Sigmodontinaewhich encompasses hundreds of species found across South America and into southern North America.
