SPECIES Eozapus setchuanus

Author:Pousargues, 1896.
Citation:Bull. Mus. Hist. Nat. Paris, 2: 13.
Common Name:Chinese Jumping Mouse
Type Locality:China, Sichuan Prov., Tatsienlu (Kangding).
Distribution:China: Qinghai, Gansu, Ningxia, Shaanxi, Sichuan, and NW Yunnan; 3000-4000 m (Qin, 1991; Wang, 1990, 2003; Zhang and Wang, 1963; Zheng and Zhang, 1990; Zhang et al., 1997, provided distribution map).
Status:IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:Martin (1994:5) wrote "Although distinctly more hypsodont and with lophs and lophids connecting the primary molar cusps, Eozapus retains the generalized, underived zapodid pattern of Plesiosminthus." The latter is the oldest known scistine found in late Oligocene and Miocene sediments in both Europe and North America. Reviewed by Corbet (1978c) and Corbet and Hill (1992).
