SPECIES Liomys pictus

Author:Thomas, 1893.
Citation:Ann. Mag. Nat. Hist., ser. 6, 12: 233.
Common Name:Painted Spiny Pocket Mouse
Type Locality:Mexico, Jalisco, San Sebastian, 4,300 ft. (1,311 m).
Distribution:West coast of Mexico from Sonora to Chiapas, and east coast in Veracruz south to extreme NW Guatemala.
Status:IUCN Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Reviewed by McGhee and Genoways (1978, Mammalian Species No. 83). Genic data suggest that pictus as currently comprised is paraphyletic; additional species are likely to be recognized with further analyses (see Morales and Engstrom, 1989, and Rogers, 1990). Williams et al. (1993) reviewed subspecific taxonomy.
