Author:Roberts, 1926.
Citation:Ann. Transvaal Mus., 11: 251.
Common Name:Orange Mouse
Type Locality:South Africa, N Free State, Kruisementifontein, Viljoensdrift, near Vereeniging.
Distribution:South Africa; N Free State (Vermeiren and Verheyen, 1983).

Either treated as a species possibly allied to M. setzeri (Vermeiren and Verheyen, 1983) or listed as a subspecies of M. minutoides (Meester et al., 1986; Skinner and Smithers, 1990). The definition of this form and its phylogenetic relationship to other southern African species require resolution.
