SPECIES Abrothrix longipilis

Author:Waterhouse, 1837.
Citation:Proc. Zool. Soc. Lond., 1837: 16.
Common Name:Long-haired Akodont
Type Locality:Chile, Coquimbo Prov., Coquimbo.
Distribution:C to S Chile and Argentina.
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc) as Akodon longipilis.
Comments:Species closely related to, perhaps conspecific with sanborni (see Osgood, 1943; Pine et al., 1979); also see A. lanosus. Pearson (1984) assigned Chelemys angustus to synonymy of A. longipilis; other synonyms follow Osgood (1943) and Reig (1987). Subspecific distributions in Chile sketched by Muñoz Pedreras (2000); easternmost records in Patagonian Argentina (Río Negro and Chubut Provs.) reported by Teta et al. (2002).
