SPECIES Peromyscus interparietalis

Author:Burt, 1932.
Citation:Trans. San Diego Soc. Nat. Hist., 7: 175.
Common Name:San Lorenzo Deermouse
Type Locality:México, Baja California Norte, San Lorenzo Sur Isl; 28°36'N, 112°51'W.
Distribution:North and South San Lorenzo Isls, and Salsipuedes Isl, N Gulf of California, México.
Status:IUCN – Endangered.
Comments:P. eremicus species group. Considered distinct from P. guardia and P. eremicus (sensu lato) by Banks (1967) and Lawlor (1971a; also see Avise et al., 1974, and Brand and Ryckman, 1969). Marginally differentiated from P. eremicus based on all characters surveyed by Lawlor (1971a) but retained as species; phyletic relations, as divulged by mitochondrial DNA (COIII) sequences, indicate derivation from a P. eremicus (sensu stricto) stock and suggest only subspecific differentiation from those mainland populations (Hafner et al., 2001).
