SPECIES Geomys personatus

Author:True, 1889.
Citation:Proc. U.S. Natl. Mus., 11: 159.
Common Name:Texas Pocket Gopher.
Type Locality:USA, Texas, Cameron Co., Padre Isl.
Distribution:S Texas, south of San Antonio and Del Rio, including Padre and Mustang Isls (USA); barrier beaches of extreme NE Tamaulipas (Mexico).
Status:IUCN Vulnerable as G. p. maritimus and G. p. streckeri, Lower Risk (nt) as G. p. fuscus and as G. personatus.
Comments:Reviewed by Davis (1940), Williams and Genoways (1981), and Williams (1982a, Mammalian Species No. 170). Subspecies streckeri may warrant specific status, as it does not share a monophyletic relationship with other taxa of personatus based on mitochondrial DNA analyses (Jolley et al., 2000). Historical distribution and geographic variation examined by Wilkins and Swearingen (1990).
