SPECIES Rheomys raptor

Author:Goldman, 1912.
Citation:Smithson. Misc. Coll., 60: 7.
Common Name:Goldman’s Ichthyomyine
Type Locality:Panamá, Darién Prov., Cerro Pirre, near headwaters of Río Limón, 4500 ft (1372 m).
Distribution:Isolated segments in highlands of C Costa Rica and W Panamá (hartmanni), and in E Panamá (raptor).
Status:IUCN – Lower Risk (lc).
Comments:Treated as a subspecies of Rheomys trichotis (Cabrera, 1961), but species status affirmed by Voss (1988). Enders (1939) described hartmanni as a species; recognized as such (e.g., Hall, 1981) until Voss (1988) allocated the form to a subspecies of raptor. Status of the morphologically distinctive hartmanni, isolated in the Talamancan highlands, deserves reconsideration using other information sources.
