Citation:Bull Am. Mus. Nat. Hist., 42: 469.
Common Name:Osbornís Key Mouse
Type Locality:Jamaica, Balaclava, Wallingford Roadside Cave.
Distribution:Jamaica.
Status:Extinct.
Comments:C. parvus is here synomized with C. osborni based on Morgan and Wilkins (2003), who noted the wide size range of C. osborni specimens from Slue's Cave, Jamaica. They interpreted this size range to indicate that C. osborni is the only valid species of Clidomys present in Jamaica.
