SPECIES Pseudomys fumeus

Author:Brazenor, 1934.
Citation:Mem. Nat. Mus. Melb., 8: 158.
Common Name:Smoky Pseudomys
Type Locality:Australia, Victoria, Turton's Pass, Otway Forest.
Distribution:Australia, Victoria (Cockburn, 1995b:599; Menkhorst, 1995d:219; Watts and Aslin, 1981:202). Range during late Pleistocene extended into E New South Wales (Wakefield, 1972a).
Status:U.S. ESA Endangered; IUCN Vulnerable.
Comments:Electrophoretic data separated P. fumeus from other species of Pseudomys (Baverstock et al., 1981); phallic morphology suggested a close tie between P. fumeus, P. albocinereus, and P. shortridgei, a group for which the generic name Gyomys is available (Lidicker and Brylski, 1987:635); but spermatozoal structure tied P. fumeus with most other species of Pseudomys (Breed, 1983). Reviewed by Watts and Aslin (1981) and Cockburn (1995b).
