SPECIES Geomys pinetis

Author:Rafinesque, 1817.
Citation:Amer. Monthly Mag., 2: 45.
Common Name:Southeastern Pocket Gopher.
Type Locality:USA, Georgia, in the region of the pines (restricted to Screven Co. by Harper, 1952).
Distribution:C Florida to S Georgia and S Alabama (USA).
Status:IUCN Extinct as G. p. goffi; Vulnerable as G. p. cumberlandius and G. p. frontanelus; Lower Risk (nt) as G. p. colonus, otherwise Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Mus tuza Barton, 1806, a senior synonym of pinetis according to Merriam (1895a), was considered of uncertain application and not available by Harper (1952). Hall (1981:505) regarded colonus, frontanelus, and cumberlandius as distinct species. Laerm (1981) supported the synonymy of cumberlandius. Reviewed by Pembleton and Williams (1978, Mammalian Species No. 86), Williams and Genoways (1980b), and Wilkins (1987b).
